Following the “Hands Off Our Hotel” demonstration, President Akufo-Addo has invited Organised Labour for a meeting on Tuesday, June 25, 2024. The meeting aims to address the controversial sale of SSNIT hotels.


This information was disclosed by North Tongu Member of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, during an interview on KeyPoints on TV3 on Saturday, June 22. “Organised Labour has informed me that the president has invited them to a meeting on the 25th of this month, which is Tuesday,” he revealed.


Ablakwa expressed his concern, hoping the meeting would not be another attempt by the President to persuade Organised Labour to back down from their opposition to the sale. He stated, “…and we hope that it will not be another attempt to convince Organised Labour because I’m so disappointed in this President that he has taken so long to intervene in this scandalous matter and just stop this rot.”


The President’s invitation follows widespread concerns, including those from Organised Labour, about SSNIT’s decision to sell 60 percent of its stake in Labadi Beach Hotel, La Palm Beach Hotel, Ridge Royal Hotel, and Busua Beach Hotel to Agriculture Minister Bryan Acheampong.


This issue gained prominence after Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s revelation. On Tuesday, June 18, 2024, Ablakwa led a “Hands Off Our Hotels” demonstration, presenting a petition to the President to halt the sale.


Ablakwa alleged that Rock City Hotels, owned by Bryan Acheampong and the intended buyer, is currently incurring losses and is unfit to manage the other hotels. He claimed that documents intercepted from the Ghana Revenue Authority showed Rock City did not file its tax returns for 2022.


In response, Bryan Acheampong refuted these allegations and challenged Ablakwa to produce the supposed documents intercepted from the GRA.
