Bryan Acheampong debunks Ablakwa’s claim against Rock City hotel

Rock City hotel is not incurring losses as claimed by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the owner of the hotel, Bryan Acheampong has said.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, who is the Member of Parliament for North Tongu is on a campaign protesting against the decision of SSNIT to sell 60 percent of its stake in four hotels to Rock City Hotel.

As part of Mr Ablakwa’s campaign, he organised a street protest last Tuesday during which he alleged that Rock City Hotel, was making losses and therefore cannot or should not be allowed to partner SSNIT in the said four hotels.

He claimed that since Rock City Hotel was financially under performing, it was not in a position to acquire the 60 percent share of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust in four hotels.

He said he possessed documents from the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) revealing Rock City’s financial troubles.

Reacting to Ablakwa’s claim in a radio interview on Accra based Citi FM , the owner of Rock City Hotel, Mr Bryan Acheampong who is also the Member of Parliament for Abetifi and currently the Minister of Food and Agriculture said Ablakwa’s claim was a “falsehood”.

Mr Acheampong questioned the authenticity of Ablakwa’s said documents and his motives.

“None of what the man was saying is true. Not one. Indeed Rock City has not even filed their annual returns with GRA they tell me. They have not been to GRA, they don’t have any records at GRA for anybody to even intercept,” Mr Acheampong said.

“But if you look at the presentation of the main protagonist in this matter as though he has intercepted documents and I put it to him today that they are all lies. They are lies, lies and fabrications. It is beyond propaganda. Pure ungodly lies and I don’t think an honorable member should do that…this is not right.”, he stated.

Meanwhile Samuel Okuzeto Ablakwa has vow not to back down anytime soon in his fight against state capture by the New Patriotic Party.

In a post shared via social media, he said he won’t rest until State Capture is defeated in Ghana.

His post shared via social media read “May I respectfully assure the revered chiefs and good people of the Central Region who have called us for a patriotic partnership to stage the next #HandsOffOurHotels demonstration since they are vehemently opposed to the sale of Elmina Beach Hotel and Ridge Royal Hotel both in the Central Region that we have unanimously agreed and resolved to hold a similar massive protest in the Central Region if President Akufo-Addo fails to stop the sales within the next few days. With this nationalistic determination, State Capture shall surely be defeated. Don’t mess with the power of the people! For God and Country. Ghana First”.
