LIVESTREAMING: ‘Hands off our hotel’ demonstration underway

The most anticipated demonstration dubbed ‘Hands off our hotels’ has commenced in Accra.

The demonstrators converged in front of one of the hotels on sale, Labadi Beach Hotel. They will match to the seat of government, Jubilee House where the organizers will present their demand to the presidency today Tuesday, June 18, 2024.

The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) is almost done with selling its 60% shares in Labadi Beach Hotel, LA Palm Royal Beach Resort, Ride Royal Hotel, and Elmina Beach Resort to Rock City Hotel.

Addressing a press conference ahead of the demonstration on Tuesday, the lawmaker stated President Akufo-Addo has not yet made any meaningful statement on the sale of the hotels.

He added “that President Akufo-Addo must immediately stop the sale of our SSNIT hotels. We want an immediate declaration from the president because since we started, all he has done is tell Organised Labour to go and meet the Employment Minister. At which meeting, Organised Labour told us that they tried to convince them to allow the sale, so clearly, the president and his appointees don’t want to stop the sale, and we are going to insist that they back out.”
