Some few days ago, president Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo was under severe public criticism when he boarded a private Aircraft to France to ask for debt cancellation instead of using the presidential jet. Most of these outcries were based on the fact that the president has a presidential jet but decided to go in for a rather more expensive jet that consumed about Ghc2.8m of tax payer's. A situation most described as a danger to the public purse.
After it happened, Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa vowed to drag the ministers for Defense and finance to come and explain to parliament why the president would prefer a private jet to the presidential jet. Though the finance minister is yet to report to parliament, the went and gave accounts on this decision by the government.
On the floor of parliament, the Defense minister, Hon. Dominic Nituwul revealed that the president did not use the presidential jet because; It has lower capacity as compacity as compared to the Acropolis, they did not also want to breakdown for refueling on their way to France hence their decision to go for a different option.
He also made it known that apart from the above reasons, the falcon is in good state and condition. And that is confirmed when the president travelled to Zambia with it to pay tribute to the late Zambian former Head of state. At the International Airport of Zambia, the falcon can be seen from afar spackling the colors of the Ghana flag.
Representing West Africa as ECOWAS chairman and Ghana as the president, Dr. Akuffo Addo eulogized Dr. Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia for a life well lived and his (Dr. Kaunda) own contributions that served the interest of African liberation from her colonial masters.
