He mentioned that according to the records, Bryan Acheampong held a ministerial position when the processes to acquire the hotels began.

“Bryan Acheampong was a minister of state in 2018 in Akufo-addo’s first term, he was minister when this traction began, according to SSNIT. Articles 284, 78 have been breached violently,” he said on the New Day show on TV3 on Wednesday, June 19.

Before Ablakwa’s statement, Ahiagbah had asserted that there was no conflict of interest involved in Bryan Acheampong’s involvement in the hotel sale, which Ablakwa had petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate.

Mr. Ahiagbah argued that there was no conflict of interest because the process to divest SSNIT’s interests in these hotels began in 2018, which was five years before Bryan Acheampong assumed the position of Minister for Food and Agriculture.

Samuel Okudzeto has been raising concerns about the proposal to sell the hotels to Minister of Food and Agriculture Bryan Acheampong.
