Published

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has bemoaned the abuse of state funds by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.

According to the NDC, despite the economic challenges the country is facing; the President is making international travels in luxurious private jets.

Speaking to press in Parliament, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said the President’s current 10-day trip will cost the state GHS4.9 million.

“The President took off in the ultra luxurious LXDIO which costs the Ghanaian tax payer $14,000 per hour. This six nation tour we have done a conservative estimate and at the end of the tour the president would have spent a colossal amount of $777,000.”

“We have called this engagement to register our revulsion, our very strong opposition for the President’s continuous contemptuous and insensitivity conduct in chartering an ultra-luxurious executive jet when Ghana has a presidential jet which is in pristine condition.

“The shocking irony is that this latest conduct of the President happened at a time only yesterday when thousands of Ghanaians were in the street demonstrating against the regressive, the obnoxious and dreaded E-levy. Many Ghanaians are saying that this is a government that does not like to be accountable,” he disclosed.

The President is on a 10-day trip and his first point of call will be Brest, France, where, at the invitation of Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic, he will participate in the One Ocean Summit, to be held on Friday, February 11, 2022.

Up to 40 world leaders are due to make “ambitious and concrete commitments” towards combating illegal fishing, decarbonising shipping and reducing plastic pollution at what is billed as the first high-level summit dedicated to the ocean.

Thereafter, he will, at the invitation of Dr. Mohamed Irfan Ali, President of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana, travel to Georgetown, Guyana, participate as a keynote speaker at the maiden International Energy Conference and Expo by Guyana to be held from 15th to 18th February, 2022.
