Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has announced the Minister for National Security, Albert Kan-Dapaah will not make it to parliament to answer questions of parliament.
The Minister was expected in Parliament today, November 18, to account for the full cost of President Akufo-Addo’s travels to France, Belgium, and South Africa in May 2021.
According to a statement from MP, communication from Kan Dapaa received by Parliament noted that he has to travel outside the jurisdiction on an official assignment.

President Akufo Addo is reported to have taken a trip to Europe in May with the Airbus ACJ320neo owned by Acropolis Aviation which is alleged to have cost a sum of £15,000 per hour instead of using the presidential jet.
Following this, Hon. Ablakwa championed a call for the trip of the President to be accounted for in parliament.
Upon the finance minister’s appearance after several postponements, he directed the house to consult the Minister for National Security, Albert Kan Dapaa for the full cost, a communication that Okudzeto found ‘disappointing’.
The former Education Minister then filed an urgent question in June for the Minister for National Security to appear before the House.
