Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor has said that the Achimota Forest remains an integral part of government’s plan for the protection of the forest cover, and the agenda for aggressive afforestation and reforestation.

He said Government, through the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, will continue to protect the Achimota Forest and prevent it from being further encroached.

“Government is also committed to ensuring that whatever that happens on the peripheral portions of the land, does not affect the ecological integrity of the Forest,” Mr Jinapor said at a press conference in Accra on Tuesday May 17 to dismiss reports that the Achimota Forest is being sold.

He said the “Achimota Forest is not for sale, will not be sold.”
