Jennifer Anne Myers Ahmed, the judge hearing a land case involving the Veterans Administration Ghana (VAG) and Dream Reality, a private company , at Accra High Court Land Division- Land court 3, for the second time, couldn’t give judgement, and has postponed it to March 21, 2023.
Management of VAG, led by the Executive Director, Capt BE Duah (Rtd), some veterans and their legal team, stormed the court ahead of 9 am, the scheduled time for the delivery of the judgement on the juicy parcel of land situated near Opebea, formerly known as “Legion Village”.
Litigation over the land, has traversed several administrations, including that of JJ Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufour, John Evans Atta Mills and John Dramani Mahama but the ex-soldiers, have remained resolute to keep their grip over it to infinity and beyond. They intend using it for buildings that will yield revenue for them through rentals and use the proceeds for their medical needs.
However, amongst the evidence produced in court to knock off the ex-servicemen’s interest from the land, is a bizarre letter authored by the Executive Secretary to President Nana Akufo-Addo, Nana Bediatuo Asante, dated August 19, 2020, in which the latter argues VAG’s re-entry into the land because it had assigned its present and future interest in the land to Annor and Associates, which has since vested its interest to Dream Reality, a Lebanese company owned by one Karim Ibrahim.
