Ablakwa Reveals The Only Importance Of IMF Bailout In A Twitter Post, Check Details.

According to North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the sole benefit of an IMF bailout may be that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would not be allowed to hire a luxury plane for his travels at a cost of €20,000 per hour.

The President's actions, according to Mr. Ablakwa, have cost the struggling taxpayer more than GHS34 million in 13 months. Mr. Ablakwa has been critical of the President for not using the Presidential Jet and instead hiring a jet that he considers to be expensive.

Mr. Ablakwa tweeted, "Perhaps the only benefit of an IMF bailout is that they would not permit Prez Akufo-Addo to stubbornly continue with his insensitive, wasteful, oligarchic €20,000 an hour chartered luxury jet travels that have cost the suffering taxpayer over GHS34million in 13 months."

President Akufo-Addo instructed Mr. Ofori-Atta to begin negotiations with the IMF on Friday, July 1, after speaking by phone with Miss Kristalina Georgieva, the IMF's managing director, to inform her of Ghana's decision to work with the Fund. The Ministry of Information made this known in a statement on Friday July 1.
