Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has thrown fresh attacks on the president of the land, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo over the use of chartered flight for travels instead of the presidential jet. The law-maker has taken it upon himself to criticize the president for ignoring the presidential jet which was used by Presidents before Nana Addo assumed office. It will be recalled that Okudzeto Ablakwa raised concerns when he alleged that the president traveled to the 76th United Nations General Assembly in an expensive private jet despite the public outcry when the president was reported to have chartered flights on two previous occasions.
In an open letter to the president in a Facebook post, Honourable Okudzeto Ablakwa alleged that Nana Addo arrived in the country at 1:41 am on Sunday, September 26 to hide the luxurious private jet from the public view. The MP who remained the president of his inaugural speech on 7th January 2017, which suggests that the various arms of government should effectively discharge their duties, said he is only playing his oversight responsibility as a member of the Legislative arm of government.
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa further stressed that it will do that president a lot good if he responds to issues raised by the public over what he termed as luxurious trips by the President since it will go a long way to clarify Ghanaians on what the burden-sharing the president said meant and how effective he is protecting the public purse. He added that a good number of Ghanaians were wondering if the money spent on the "luxurious trips" could not have been used to purchase a new presidential jet.
Honorable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa concluded by saying he and his colleague MP will not rest until the president accounts for his travels to the Ghanaian people.
