We won't allow those who promised to protect the purse steal it – Osman Ayariga

Deputy National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Osman Ayariga, has said that Ghanaian youth will not stand idle while the Akufo-Addo government attempts to seize control of all state assets.

Mr Ayariga asserted that the youth of Ghana are prepared to vigorously oppose any such move.

In his assessment, Mr Ayariga criticized the Akufo-Addo administration for promising to protect the state's finances but instead, he accused them of plundering the treasury and all its contents.

During a media interview, Mr Ayariga called upon all citizens to unite in solidarity for the greater good of the nation, urging them to stand firm against actions detrimental to Ghana's welfare.

"We'll not allow people who promised to protect the purse to steal the purse and all its contents in it. Where does this end?  This Akufo-Addo wants to take over everything from this country and amass it for themselves and the youth of the country will not sit down and allow it to continue," he stated.

He was addressing the controversy surrounding the sale of certain hotels owned by SSNIT to Rock City Limited, a company owned by the Minister for Food and Agriculture, Dr. Bryan Acheampong.

The matter led to the recent protest led by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Member of Parliament for North Tongu.
