Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Ohene Agyapong was surprised about how little he believes late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie “Sir John” has made after several years of work, describing the content of the late lawyer’s will as “peanuts”.
According to the NPP Lawmaker, given the reaction Sir John’s will has received, Ghanaians should prepare for a bigger shock when they see his will expressing disappointment that some persons within NPP joined the crucifixion of Sir John.
Mr. Agyapong’s reaction comes less than 24 hours after NPP Deputy General Nana Obiri Boahen said the properties in Sir John’s will was “too much”.
Mr. Kennedy Agyapong was addressing NPP USA where he rescued Presidential Staffer Napaga Tia who was heckled by NPP USA members after she attempted to make point by condemning NPP members who shared Sir John’s alleged Will on social media.
Taking the microphone, Kennedy Agyapong said NPP has to be careful and what Napaga was saying is actually the truth.
“Look 6 plots [for Sir John], me I am telling you, when I declare my assets, then you people will be shocked.” He said.
“Because when I was reading Sir John’s will I said: ‘Ah, but this peanuts!?’… Yes, you will be shocked.” He added.
“So I put myself in Sir John’s shoes so if I am dead today this is what is going to happen? Even within my own party? So we have to be careful NPP”.
The late former Forestry Commission Chief Executive, popularly called Sir John, bequeathed portions of the Achimota Forest Reserve and Ramsar site lands to his relatives in a purported will that went viral on social media.
Parts of his will read: “I give my land situated at the Achimota Forest in the name of Jakaypro Limited and measuring 5.541 acres to the following persons forever.
– Yaw Amoateng Afriyie – One (1) acre
– Eva Akua Afriyie – One (1) acre
– Ivy Akua Afriyie – One (1) acre
– Elizabeth Asare Boateng (aka Mother) – One (1) acre
– Michael Owusu – 1.541 acres
It continued: “I give my land also situated at the Achimota Forest in the name of Fasoh Limited and measuring 0.987acres to my nephews Michael Owusu, Yaw Boadu, and Kwabena Amoateng forever.”
The will further states: “I jointly own a piece of land at Achimota Forest with Charles Owusu. Upon my demise, my portion of the said land should be given to Ruth Korkor Odonkor.”
The will contained cars, trucks, guns and several houses with cash in investments and deposits in Ghana and abroad.
