President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo is set to travel to the United States sometime soon. He would be in Atlanta, Georgia with his delegation from November 29, 2021 to December 2, 2021. The President and his delegation are expected to lodge at the Four Seasons Hotel in Atlanta, USA. The cost involved in this travel that has been revealed seems too huge for some people and as such have commented on this.
The Member of Parliament for South Dayi Constituency, Hon. Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, took to his Twitter handle to comment about the huge sums of money that would be spent from the Ghanaian taxpayers' money on just a few days stay in the US. Hon. Dafeamekpor stated that the government has imposed the Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy) on the citizens on grounds that the country does not have money but this same government chooses to spend the little it has profligately. The South Dayi MP also revealed that the cost of lodging at the Four Seasons Hotel was $ 8000 (GH¢ 51, 200) per night. The total cost for hotel accommodation alone is also estimated at $ 73,395 (GH¢ 470,000).
