 Ablakwa Submits Petition Against Hotel Sales to Government

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Member of Parliament for North Tongu, has formally petitioned the government to immediately halt the sale of four hotels owned by the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) to Rock City Hotel, which is owned by Dr. Bryan Acheampong, the Minister of Food and Agriculture.

The petition outlines several demands, urging President Akufo-Addo to stop the sale process immediately.

Ablakwa emphasized that the sale of state properties has historically not benefited Ghana, arguing that such transactions should not occur without the consent of the entire population.

“…We hereby make the following demands: We call on President Akufo-Addo to immediately stop the sale of our SSNIT hotels. We believe that state assets should not be sold, especially profitable ones. Historically, since 1966, the sale of state assets has not served Ghana’s supreme interest, and we, therefore, cannot continue on this destructive trajectory.

“In any case, the government should not sell state properties without the consent of all Ghanaians. It is wrong, immoral, and unethical for ministers and government officials to buy state assets. President Akufo-Addo must not preside over this detestable and dangerous practice.

“Particularly, when he assured this country that his appointees who want to make money through such transactions should rather stay in the private sector,” he stated.

A government official accepted the petition on behalf of the presidency.
