Ablakwa Challenges Freddie Blay: “I Cannot Retract the Truth”<span class="wtr-time-wrap after-title"><span class="wtr-time-number">1</span> min read</span>

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Member of Parliament for North Tongu, has firmly stood by his statements regarding Freddie Blay’s alleged involvement in acquiring the Labadi Beach Hotel’s front space, daring Blay to pursue legal action if he disagrees.

Blay, also the GNPC Board Chair and former NPP National Chairman, issued a one-week ultimatum to Ablakwa, TV3’s management, and Johnnie Hughes, demanding a withdrawal of what he considers baseless allegations involving his family.

Blay asserts that his children legally obtained sections of the beachfront from the LA Council, clarifying that this property is separate from the hotel’s management.

Ablakwa accuses Blay and his sons of partaking in state capture by gaining interests in the beachfront traditionally managed by the Labadi Beach Hotel, impacting the hotel’s operational control.

Blay responded, stating initial discussions with the hotel did not conclude in an agreement, leading his sons to approach the La Traditional Council for business purposes. He defends the legality of their acquisition and questions why the hotel has not challenged it legally.

In a recent statement, Ablakwa affirmed, “I cannot retract the truth, Mr. Freddie Blay.” He urged Blay to take legal action immediately instead of waiting for the ultimatum.

A demonstration titled ‘Hands Off our Hotels’ is scheduled for Tuesday, June 18, 2024, where Ablakwa promises further revelations and vows to combat state capture in Ghana, concluding with a call to prioritize the nation’s interests: “For God and Country. Ghana First.”
