I didn’t own filling stations under “modest” Prof. Mills’ govt – Ablakwa

The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has denied claims that he owned fuel stations during his early days as a politician and that he flew abroad every weekend for schooling during the Atta-Mills government.

He addressed these issues in an interview on Accra-based TV3’s Hot Issues programme, where he discussed various topics including politics, governance, corruption, and his personal life.

“I’m not a businessman; I don’t own any filling stations. I never flew abroad every weekend; how could one do that under the modest Prof. Mills? They don’t provide any evidence. I’m glad time has vindicated me,” he submitted.

The topic of Ablakwa schooling abroad resurfaced recently when some social media users affiliated with the government brought it up to counter Ablakwa’s anti-corruption publications.

Ablakwa, who was once a student leader, transitioned into politics after being appointed as a deputy minister during Atta Mills’ presidency. He later became a Member of Parliament and has since held onto the North Tongu seat.

Regarding his relationship with his political mentor, the late John Evans Atta Mills, he expressed that he named his son after Mills due to the profound impact Mills had on his political perspective.

“I wish I even did more for President Atta Mills. That’s why I named my son after him. I have no regrets for defending the interest of my party,” he emphasized.
