Freddie Blay: My son legally leased Labadi Beachfront


Former National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Freddie Blay, has defended his son, Kwaw Blay, asserting that he legally obtained the land for the Polo Beach Club from the La Traditional Council.


In a statement to journalists in Accra on Tuesday, Freddie Blay addressed allegations made by Samuel Okudzato Ablakwa, the Member of Parliament for North Tongu, who suggested the land was acquired unlawfully. Freddie Blay refuted these claims, emphasizing that the land was leased appropriately.


“The place was leased by the traditional authorities and you call it state capture. It is a lease for about 20 to 25 years. This stretch of land used here does not belong to government and it does not belong to the Labadi Beach Hotel,” Blay explained, stressing the legitimacy of the lease.


In an interview with Citi FM last Thursday, Kwaw Blay demanded an apology from Ablakwa and hinted at potential legal action. He expressed his dismay, saying, “…It is so preposterous as a learned gentleman like Ablakwa himself will come and spew such utter rubbish. It is unfair that you drag our good name.”


He further warned that, “By the middle of next week, he will hear from our lawyers very strongly and in different [batches]. Mind you sir he has mentioned three individuals so he should be very careful.”
