President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo commented on the brouhaha concerning the sale of state-owned hotels by the national pensions body

The president's reaction was confirmed by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) boss, Dr Yaw Baah, who told the media that the president had in his response referred their concerns to the Labour Minister after TUC petitioned the president.

“We wrote to the president that we needed to engage him on this [sale of the SSNIT hotels]. He has referred it to the [Employment and Labour Relations] Minister to start the engagement with us.

"We are hoping that these engagements will help all of us to find a solution to what we think is a problem.

“We are going to meet with the SSNIT Board. Organized labour leaders are going to meet with the SSNIT Board and also with the Employment and Labour Relations Minister who is also in charge of pensions,” Dr Baah added.

The TUC boss did not disclose when the sector minister, Ignatius Baffour Awuah, is scheduled to engage in discussions with labour leaders.
