Over 416 individuals, mostly previous government officials were allocated state lands between 2009 and 2016.

Former Presidents, John Kufuor and Jerry Rawlings have admitted they received the lands but while John Kufuor claims it is part of his ex-gratia, Rawlings has explained it is for his foundation.

Former National Chair of the National Democratic Congress Dr Kwabena Adjei, former CEO of the National Health Insurance Authority Dr Sylvester Mensah and former Education minister Lee Ocran all acquired state lands in luxurious areas like Airport Residential Area, North Ridge, East Legon Switch Backroad etc.
