The Government of Ghana has since the gain of independence purchased private jets for its administration. Doctor Kwame Nkruma purchased a private jet during his time as president of Ghana. Ex president His Excellency John Agyekum Kuffor also purchased a private jet when he realised the old one was not functioning well.
Current president, His excellency, Nana Addo has through his presidency made it know that the government will be opting for a new private jet. This decision has generate a lot of debate in the media space.
One thing that stands out from it all is the renting of private jet for the president during his travels. Just recently, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa who is the Member of Parliament for the North Tongu in the Volta region revealed to the public the huge cost involved in the renting of private jet by the president during his travels.
Ghana is currently renting it's presidential jet plane to Liberian president. What a lot of people can't understand is why we are renting our private jet from another country whiles our own is working. Many believe it is a plan to amass wealth for themselves.
what are your thoughts on this.
