Back in April 2016, the founder of the NDC in an interview with editorial board of Achimota School’s magazine said he wanted his remains back in the Achimota Forest to enable plants to grow.

“Since I love the Achimota forest, I am looking forward to being cremated and my ashes brought to the forest and used to plant a few trees,” he said when asked what he missed most about the school.

“Are you afraid my ghost will be appearing? Let people believe; that way, it will help preserve the forest,” he said.
