“I give my house at Otinshi to any future wife that I may marry. Should I be deceased before I marry, then it should be given to my nephew, Michael Owusu forever,” the last paragraph under ‘Houses’ read.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a related story that an aide to late Sir John, Charles Owusu, said that he could not sleep on Sunday night after learning that the will of the former NPP politician had been leaked to the public.
Charles Owusu, who is mentioned as one of the executors of the will, said it is improper for the property-loaded document to be leaked because it prompted jokes and unwarranted ridicule of the deceased former politician.
He said per Akan tradition, the leaking of the document and the social media ridicule is bad for the memory of the late former CEO of the Forestry Commission. Speaking to Asempa FM on Monday, May 23, 2022, Mr Owusu said he has been overwhelmed by the many calls and social media taunts since the details of the will hit the internet.
