More probe required into Sir John and Achimota Land Brouhaha – GII

You will not get a ‘pin’ from Achimota Forest, Ramsar site lands- Jinapor to Sir John’s beneficiaries

The Programmes Manager at Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), Mrs Mary Addah says it will serve the Public good to probe the alleged Achimota Forest lands acquired by former CEO of Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, also known as Sir John.

According to her, there are a series of corruption-related infractions in the said Will, hence the need for in-depth investigations.

Mrs. Addah’s comments come after Corruption Watch Ghana petitioned the Special Prosecutor to investigate the alleged acquisition of several acres of State lands situated within the Achimota Forest and at Ramsar sites at Sakumono in the Greater Accra Region.

According to Corruption Watch Ghana, Sir John was a Public Officer and a politically exposed person per the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act, 2017 (Act 959), when he served as the CEO of the Forestry Commission.

Speaking on GBC’s ‘Behind the News’, Mrs Addah noted that ”the probe will, in the long run, bring clarity and accountability to the matter.”
