Even as the general public are outraged by the properties Sir John Stole while in office as the forestry commission boss, some members of the NPP seem not to see anything wrong with such glaring grabbing of state lands.
Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, MP, Assin Central, has described assets by former Forestry Commission CEO, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John, as peanut.
According to him, when his last Will and Testament become public, Ghanaians will be shocked to see the properties he has been able to acquire for himself.
Agyapong, who was speaking to NPP delegates in the US said, the brouhaha surrounding Sir John’s Will is needless.
He noted that the controversy surrounding Sir John’s Will could be an agenda propagated by the opposition NDC; as he warned his party against making comments that would further denigrate the late Sir John.
“Whatever NDC is setting as an agenda, it will come to haunt us. Sometimes there is no truth in it and so we have to be careful with Sir John’s issue of six plots. Me, when I declare my assets you would be shocked because when I was reading Sir John’s Will I said but this is peanut.
“[If] I put myself in the person’s shoes that if am dead today, is this what is going to happen even within my own party? So we have to be careful,” Kennedy Agyapong stated.
