Our Politicians Are The "Real Con Men." - Efia Odo

This Efia Odo claims, is because politicians divide the country’s resources among themselves.

Efia Odo went on to say that as a result, they are the country’s true swindlers.

“There is money in the system, and it is distributed among politicians.”
They’re the real swindlers, boys!” Efia Odo tweeted on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.

The socialite’s remarks come at a time when Ghanaians have been shocked by the details of the late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie‘s will, who was the Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission.

The will includes a staggering number of properties, including some parcels of land in the Achimota Forest.

In his will, he left portions of the Achimota Forest lands to family members.

Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, whose office was located in the Achimota Forest until his death, stated on page 4 of his will, “I give my land located in 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

“I give my land also situate 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,” says page 5 of the will.

“Charles Owusu and I share ownership of a plot of land in Achimota Forest.
Ruth Korkor Odonkor should receive my portion of the said land upon my death “it was added.

“I give my portion of land that jointly own at the Achimota Forest in the name of DML Limited to Elizabeth Asare Boateng who at the time of making this will is domiciled in the USA forever,” the will stated.

Sir John in the will indicated that he owned land at the Ramsar area in Sakumono in Accra.

“I give my land situated at the Ramsar area at Sakumono in the Greater Accra Region and measuring 5.07 acres to my sisters Abena Saah and her children, Comfort Amoateng and her children, Abena Konadu and Juliet Akua Arko and her children on equal share basis forever,” he said.

A Ramsar site is defined by the Centre for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Services (CERSGIS) as “a wetlands site designated as of international significance by the Ramsar convention
It calls for national and international action to conserve wetlands and make wise, sustainable use of their resources.”

The Sakumono site, according to CERSGIS, “is the only wetland wholly owned by the government and is meant for protecting Sakumono, Tema, and their environs against floods and pollution, breeding fish for the Sakumono Lagoon, as well as recreational activities.”
