Residents chase Nana Konadu for grabbing 700-acre land
Residents of four communities, including Adoagyiri, Owuaku, Ntoasi and Akwamu, in the Eastern Region, have warned of a massive showdown akin to the Arab Spring, if Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings does not return a 700-acre land she acquired some years ago.
The irate indigenes of the aforementioned communities accused the former first lady of acquiring the property through dubious means, hence the need for her to return it to the rightful owners.
The vast land stretches from Nsawam Cannery all the way to the Koans Estate enclave, Asempanews.com has gathered.
They want government to stop Mrs Agyeman-Rawlings from selling the sprawling property to a private developer.
The land, Asempanews.com understands, was acquired by government to grow pineapple to feed Nsawam Cannery when the factory was established but was eventually offered to the former first family.
Consequently, the group has sent a petition to the Nsawam Adoagyiri Municipal Assembly and warned of series of processions if their concerns are not addressed.
