SSNIT Hotels Sale: Ablakwa to lead mass protest against Bryan Acheampong’s deal

The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has notified the Ghana Police Service of a planned demonstration against the sale of Social Security and National Insurance Trust’s (SSNIT) 60% stake in four hotels to Rock City Hotel, owned by the Minister for Food and Agriculture, Bryan Acheampong.

The demonstration, scheduled for Tuesday, June 18, will commence at the Labadi Beach Hotel, proceed through La Palm Royal Beach Hotel, and end at the Jubilee House, where a petition will be presented to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Ablakwa has been vocal in his opposition to the sale, citing a lack of due process and violation of procurement procedures.

He has also petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) seeking an investigation into the sale of the hotels owned by SSNIT.

In a statement available to Metro TV, Ablakwa expressed optimism about receiving maximum cooperation from the police and disappointment in the government’s pursuit to sell the hotels to Bryan Acheampong despite public outcry.

The demonstration is part of a national resistance against the sale, which Ablakwa believes is unconscionable and against the interest of Ghanaians.

He urged citizens to join the demonstration and demand that the government stop the sale.
