The Member of Parliament for Odododiodio Constituency, Hon. Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye is on the verge of spending some years in prison custody for comments made amidst Achimota Forest brouhaha.
Parts of the Achimota Forest through an Executive Instrument signed by the President His Excellency Nana Akufo Addo gave parts of the reserve to Owoo Family in Accra whom government claims to be original custodians of the land in question.
Hon. Nii Lante later revealed that he’ s a member of the Owoo Family whom the land has been given to. However another family, the Odoi family has also risen to claim ownership of the land.
In their press conference explaining why they are the owners and not Owoo family, Odoi family has threatened to arrest the Member of Parliament for Odododiodoo Constituency in Accra for saying he is part of the petition for the land to be given.
” We, the Odoi Kwao family are saying that the purported Owoo Family of Osu to whom the land was purported to have been given to, are scammers, they are criminals and therefore they have to be found and prosecuted” .
According to Odoi family, Hon. Nii Lante and the entire Owoo family has scammed Ghana hence the need to arrest them and out them behind bars. Meanwhile, the MP has told TV3 news that he’ s ready and waiting for them to arrest him. ” I have no relationship with them [Nii Odoi Kwao Family].
I have never dealt with them in any way in my life and I was amazed and I laughed when I heard the news that I should be arrested. The man speaking is an elderly person and by training, I wouldn’ t want to engage them but I am waiting for the arrest”.
