Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a member of parliament for North Tongu, has praised Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for taking the presidential plane of Ghana on his visits to Germany and Ethiopia.
In a post sighted by Tru News Report On Monday, February 20, 2023, the MP tweeted that the country had saved nearly GHC6.5 million since the president had chosen not to employ a luxurious private plane for his last trip.
He said “By this commendable conduct, and having regard for the current luxury VIP private jet market rate, the President has saved the suffering Ghanaian taxpayer some €480,000 (GHC6.5 million) by avoiding his favorite profligate luxury chartered jet.
In addition, he stated that the current economic crisis in Ghana could have been avoided if Akufo-Addo had been more reliable in his use of the presidential jet.
“I can confirm from our unimpeachable tracking that for President Akufo-Addo’s latest travel to the Munich Security Conference and AU meetings in Addis Ababa, he used Ghana’s Presidential Jet (assault Falcon 900 EX) for the entire 17hr:53min flight time. He returned to Accra at 11:40 pm last night.
“This is the prudent presidential conduct Ghanaians have been demanding for years- a sensitive and frugal leadership which could have saved Ghana over GHC100million and perhaps averted the current
economic crisis,” he added.
