The Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Samuel Abdulai Jinapor, has stated that the Achimota Forest Reserve has not been sold.
He says rumours suggesting the government has gazetted an Executive Instrument (E.I.) to approve the redesignation, sale or development of the land are fake and must be utterly disregarded.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Mr Jinapor wrote that the “Achimota Forest has not and will not be sold.”
The Achimota Forest Reserve has been trending on social media, especially Twitter and Facebook, since midday over the claims it has been sold by the government.
The Achimota School Twitter handle (@AchimotaSchool) tweeted asking “is it true Achimota Forest Reserve has been sold?”
