Dr. Bryan Acheampong, the Minister for Food and Agriculture, has addressed accusations from the Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, concerning his purported efforts to acquire four hotels under the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT).

Speaking to Joy FM on Tuesday, May 21, the Abetifi MP sent words of caution to Ablakwa against undermining his personal integrity and the standing of Rock City Hotel.

Mr Ablakwa on May 17, petitioned on the Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) demanding an investigation into Dr. Acheampong’s acquisition of the SSNIT hotels. He is also advocating for CHRAJ to suspend and scrutinise the transaction.

In his petition, Ablakwa stated that the transaction involving SSNIT’s hotel shares was conducted without proper procedure and violated procurement regulations.

However, Dr. Acheampong has voiced his discontent with the actions of his parliamentary colleague, refuting the claims as baseless and asserting that they are part of a calculated scheme to besmirch his reputation.

“You are just adding things together and trying to destroy me and trying to destroy Rock City. It is most unfair, it is ‘un-Ghanaian’ and you should stop it,” he said.

He urged the North Tongu MP to distinguish him from his businesses and ask genuine questions if he has any.

“If you have issues with a corporate entity, ask questions. I will never stop you and nobody will stop you from asking questions but in the tangent that you [Okudzeto Ablakwa] are going, it has nothing to do with that.

“I am a politician and I can be okay with it… but note that you are not speaking the truth and CHRAJ will confirm all this to you.”
