Ablakwa to Lead Protest Against SSNIT Hotel Sale to Bryan Acheampong

North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has informed the Ghana Police Service of an upcoming protest against the sale of SSNIT’s 60% share in four hotels to Rock City Hotel, owned by Abetifi MP Bryan Acheampong.

Ablakwa has strongly opposed the transaction, alleging procedural misconduct and procurement violations. He has also appealed to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate the sale of SSNIT-owned hotels.

Acheampong, who is also the Minister for Agriculture, accuses Ablakwa of damaging his reputation.

The protest is scheduled for Tuesday, June 18, starting at the Labadi Beach Hotel, passing through La Palm Royal Beach Hotel, and concluding at the Jubilee House, where a petition will be submitted to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Ablakwa is optimistic about police cooperation.

“In accordance with the Public Order Act. 1994 (Act 491), this serves as formal notice that a significant number of Ghanaians will demonstrate against the improper sale of SSNIT’s 60% stake in its hotels to Rock City, owned by the Minister for Food and Agriculture, Hon. Bryan Acheampong.

“The demonstration will take place on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, at 9 am. This event is part of a series of patriotic actions to protect Ghana’s strategic assets.

“We anticipate full cooperation from the Ghana Police Service in this crucial matter of public interest, as required by Act 491.”

Ablakwa expressed dismay at the government’s decision to proceed with the sale despite public opposition.

“Despite widespread public discontent and clear demands from Organized Labour and Civil Society Organizations to halt the sale, the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia administration has ignored the majority of Ghanaians who oppose this deal.

“As the deal nears completion and noting the Minister’s unusual public defenses, which indicate the government’s intent to proceed with this controversial arrangement, we, as citizens, must escalate our resistance.”
