It's Better Off Renting Than Owning a Presidential Jet - Kofi Bentil Says With Reasons

Following the banter on social media in relation to the president traveling with a rented private jet instead of the presidential jet, the vice President of IMANI Center For Policy And Education Think Tank, Kofi Bentil has insinuated that it's far better for the president to be renting private jets for its activities than owning one.

According to Kofi Bentil, when the cost of the number of times Ghanaians rent the most expensive chartered jets is calculated and compared with the price of owning a private jet, one will easily agree that, the country is better off renting and not owning presidential jet.

"Calculate the number of times we can rent the most expensive chartered jets with the price of owning a jet. You will realize we are better off renting and not owning presidential jets" he said

His comments came as a result of the call by the minority Caucus of parliament to review the amount paid by the state to rent a private jet for the president. According to Okudzeto Ablakwa, the price is meaningless and the government needs to provide reasons why it is not utilizing the presidential jet secured to aid in the movements of the president.
