Member of parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has revealed that persons behind the Frontiers Covid-19 Airport testing are the same promoters of the “airport land grab” in the Heaven scandal.
In his part 2 of “The Heaven Scandal”, Mr Ablakwa revealed that since the publication of Part 1 of The Heaven Scandal and his subsequent engagement on X Spaces, many have been asking: “Who are behind Heaven Builders Limited?”
In the true spirit of “transparency, accountability and parliamentary oversight”, he indicated that there shall be full disclosure, as he has secured the incorporation documents of Heaven Builders Limited.
“There is more bombshell: deep throat unimpeachable sources within the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia administration have revealed to me that the same ‘lootocratic’ brigands who were behind the infamous Frontiers COVID-19 Airport testing heist are the same promoters of this unconscionable Airport land grab.”Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa
According to Mr Ablakwa, Heaven Builders was acquired and taken over by its current directors on April 17, 2018. He further noted that the stated capital for Heaven Builders Limited which has been made an offer and allocation of prime Airport lands valued in excess of US$150million is a paltry GHS5,000.00.
From the incorporation documents, he noted that Heaven Builders Limited indicates that it envisages to have only one employee.
“With one employee, a stated capital of a measly GHS5,000 and absolutely no track record — President Akufo-Addo, Vice President Bawumia, Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta and their collaborators at the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) believe Heaven Builders have the best capacity to be Anchor Developers and new owners of 62 acres of prime Airport land.”Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa
For the avoidance of doubt, and for better appreciation, Mr Ablakwa stated that the 93-acre prime land in issue is bounded on the west by the Airport By-pass Road, on the south by the Airport Road, on the north by a rail line, and east by the terminals 1 and 2 tarmac.
He highlighted that some prominent businesses and celebrated brands in the immediate vicinity of the “giveaway” prime land to Heaven Builders include Marriott Hotel, Holiday Inn, Accra Mall, Marina Mall, Head Offices of Stanbic, Vodafone and Nestle.
“The unholy Frontiers-Heaven Builders connection cannot be dismissed as mere conspiracy theory when a careful study of the incorporation documents of both companies reveal that both companies have the same witness in the person of Edward Charles Appiah with the same address.”Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa
Ghana Institution of Surveyors commended
Furthermore, Mr Ablakwa emphasized that he shall return to other “modus operandi” of this same Ghana/Nigeria “lootocratic picaroons” in later publications.
He however confirmed that two reputable independent professional entities have delivered reasoned professional assessments of the Heaven Builders deal to the GACL.
The North Tongu legislator revealed that they have both vehemently disagreed with the counteroffer of Heaven Builders wherein they demand 62 acres.
“The two independent professional entities are Brightwater Property Investment Limited and the renowned Ghana Institution of Surveyors. Brightwater’s assessment was delivered on July 25, 2023 and signed by its Director, Osafo Gyimah.”Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa
Moreover, Mr Ablakwa underscored that the Ghana Institution of Surveyors damning assessment was delivered to the GACL on 24th July 2023 and co-signed by Surv. Dr. Frank Gyamfi-Yeboah, FGhIS (for Pacific Real Estate Advisors) and Surv. Yaw Osei-Wusu Peprah, MRICS, MGhIS (for Assenta Property Consulting).
By this, he indicated that both professional bodies are of the opinion that even if the deal should go ahead, the valuation of Heaven Builders was “terribly low”, and that they didn’t deserve anything beyond 40 acres, even if they could really raise US$85 million.
“Interestingly, whereas Heaven Builders was claiming an acre should be valued at an average US$1.3million, the Ghana Institution of Surveyors report contains real purchases within that vicinity far in excess including a 1.75 acre which sold at US$6.3million as far back as 2019.”Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa
Meanwhile, Mr Ablakwa commended Brightwater Property Investment Limited and the Ghana Institution of Surveyors for their patriotic and professional service. He indicated that they have done their part, urging all and sundry to rise and stop this “grand looting” of prime lands.
“The NDC caucus in Parliament stands ready to totally scuttle this corrupt land grab in the next few days when the House resumes. Ghana must remain a democracy not a lootocracy. This is not a deal from Heaven, it has every trait of a deal from Satan’s Hell.”Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa
