Honorable Kennedy Agyapong, a member of parliament for the New Patriotic Party in Assin Central, has issued a new statement regarding the Achimota forest, which was sold to several members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), notably the late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, also known as Sir John.
According to Kennedy, who spoke on Net 2 television, the forest that was sold to some NPP members must be confiscated because it is illegal in the country.
How can a land commissioner sell the Achimota forest to a bunch of people simply because they have power and can do whatever they want? It is illegal, and the forest has existed for many years for a purpose.
He also holds his party members responsible for the purchase of the Achimota forest. They spoke out against former President John Dramani Mahama for being corrupt and selling state properties in the hope that things would improve, but things have gotten worse, and if nothing is done, the National Democratic Congress would come in and start selling government properties.
He made it clear that whether they bought it or not, we must return it. It is not their property, but rather belongs to the country.
