Professor at the University of Ghana Ransford Yaw Gyampo has penned an open letter to the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor, on his “exuberance” in probing the supposed will of the late former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie.
Prof Gyampo said it is easier to deal with a dead person than a living person because “they don’t and actually can’t talk”.
“Probe deeper to see your colleague living souls who may have acquired lands they aren’t supposed to acquire,” he wrote.

Open Letter to the Lands and Natural Resources Minister
Dear Mr Jinapor,
You are being cautiously hailed as an action man, and of course this is to be expected from a very young dynamo man with all the zeal.
I have spoken to quite a number of well-meaning people in society on the Sir John land acquisitions and many seem unsure of what is really going on. Some are however are happy with your swift intervention.
But I think your exuberance must be well targeted.
Take note that it is easy to deal with dead men because they don’t and actually can’t talk.
Probe deeper to see your colleague living souls who may have acquired lands they aren’t supposed to acquire.
Deal with them to give more meaning to your exuberance. Should you be able to do this with same energy and zeal, you will have the full support and respect of the many discerning Ghanaians who are at the moment, cautiously optimistic about the sincerity of your swift interventions.
