Children Of Akufo-Addo’s Relative Used Presidential Jet For Shopping In UK

While the opposition continues to fight President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over his use of expensive private jets despite having a functional presidential jet, the Executive Director of think-tank, Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability, ASEPA, Mensah Thompson, has alleged that the presidential jet off has recently been made available for the personal use of the president’s close relatives.

According to Mensah Thompson, some children of a close relative of the president between December 20 to December 30, 2021, were allowed to use Ghana’s Presidential Jet for a shopping trip to the UK.

In a Facebook post sighted by GhanaCNN, the ASEPA boss further alleged that the relatives of the president brought their friends along on the trip and they turned the Presidential Jet into a party venue, of which they shared pictures and videos on social media.

“So between the 20th and 30th of December, 2021, during the Christmas, the children of a close relative of the President took Ghana’s Presidential Jet the Falcon EX jet on a trip to the UK just for Christmas shopping.

“They didn’t go alone, they went with their friends and partied in the sky all through the trip, taking snap videos and flaunting their lucky adventure,” he alleged.

Albeit without any of the videos or pictures to back his allegations, he lamented the decision by the government to release the jet to the president’s relatives while the president himself continues to travel in private jets which cost the state millions of cedis.

“Ghana has spent close to half a billion dollars in the last two years renting private jets for our president, whiles his family members continue to lavish in our rejected aircraft at the expense of the poor tax payer,” he said.

Calling for answers from the relevant state agencies, Mr Mensah added that “The Ministry of National Security, the Ghana Airforce and the Civil Aviation Authority would have to provide answers to the good people of Ghana why a national security asset like the Presidential jet was left at the mercy of spoilt youngsters who went partying around the world playing in Ghana’s Presidential jet, creating an international diplomatic spectacle embarrassing the country Ghana.”

Controversy over president’s use of private jets for foreign travels

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been accused of profligacy with his decision to resort to the use of private jets for his foreign travels.

According to some critics and members of the opposition, the decision by the president to use private airplanes at the expense of a functioning Falcon EX Presidential Jet owned by the state is a means of incurring colossal losses to the state.

The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has for several months tried unsuccessfully to get government to disclose the cost of the president’s foreign travels using private jets.

The Minister of National Security, when summoned to parliament to answer a question on the cost, failed to make a disclosure citing the safety and security of the president.

Meanwhile, the government has announced plans to acquire a new and bigger presidential jet for the State.

Akufo-Addo’s Chair Is Assigned To A V8 Car With A Bodyguard – Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe

Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe, an aide to former president John Dramani Mahama says he was shocked to witness President Akufo-Addo’s chair being transported in a dedicated V8 with a bodyguard and a driver.

Speaking on Metro TV he said he initially did not believe reports that the President’s chair was always transported in a dedicated vehicle thinking it was politics as usual.

However, at a funeral of a Supreme Court Justice, he personally witnessed the chair being moved in a dedicated V8 and had the shock of his life.

“The President assigns V8 to carry his chair. In fact, initially, I thought it was not true until I saw it. The first time when I saw it myself I was shocked, (it was) at the burial grounds of a retired Supreme Court judge.

“I went with John Mahama, when the president came, obviously he is the last person to come. A whole V8 is dedicated to a chair, with the driver and a guard. That whole V8 is assigned to carrying the President’s chair,” he lamented.

Akufo Addo’s Government Plans to Send Military Into Parliament to Force E-Levy on NDC MPs

The Executive Director for the Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), Mensah Thompson, has alleged that the government is bent on passing the 1.75% Electronic Levy (E-Levy) by using the military to enforce this.

He alleges that the government intends to force the hand of the law-making body to approve the controversial E-Levy, even if it means using the soldiers to physically the National Democratic Congress MPs.

“My sources at the Jubilee house contacted me again yesterday and the information is simple, they have resolved to pass the e-levy at all cost when Parliament resumes. In fact, they intend to send the military to Parliament again when the e-levy debate degenerates into a scuffle and their plan is to assault the NDC MPs if they attempt to resist like the other time,” he alleged.

Mensah Thompson made this known in a Facebook post, adding that there is the need for members of the Minority to be on guard.

He also questioned what the fear is with the government returning to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) if the need be.

“The Minority must be on their guard, the plan for the e-levy is big, they intend to pass it all cost or they have to go to the IMF and that is exactly what they don’t want.

“But the question is why are they sooo afraid of going to the IMF?, some people have said oh, they don’t like the propaganda or they don’t want to feel ashamed for taking us back to the IMF…

“Ghanaians Paa, smh!!… For how long would we understand that these guys are shameless and they don’t give a shit about your propaganda?” his post said.

It will be recalled that a year ago, when this parliament was being constituted, chaos broke out on the floor of the chamber, leading to some military men invading the House.
