The Lands Minister stressed that the assignment of Prof. Frimpong-Boateng was specific.


"The Professor took a lot of steps and did a lot of works of which we are preview to"


"The jury is out there, the Ghanaian people will have to make the judgement of the works of Professor Frimpong-Boateng and IMCIM did between 2017 and 2021"


"I am not the one to pass judgement"


"I think it will be most unfair to Professor Frimpong-Boateng who somehow is my predecessor"
