The Head of the Public Relations Unit of the National Lottery Authority (NLA), Razak Kojo Opoku, has attacked Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa for raising concerns over President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s recent foreign travels.
The North Tongu lawmaker accused the president of living an ostentatious lifestyle after spending an amount of GHC2.8 million on his recent travels to only South Africa and France.
The president used the services of a private jet, Airbus ACJ320neo which is owned by Acropolis Aviation based in Farnborough, UK, and registered as G-KELT.
It is the most luxurious and the most expensive in the Acropolis fleet.
According to the NDC Member of Parliament (MP), renting the jet caused the Ghanaian taxpayer approximately £15,000 an hour.
Reacting to the NDC MP in an article, Razak Kojo Opoku who is also the founder of the Concerned Voter Movement (CVM) dismissed Ablakwa’s concerns as a “complete joke.”
“If anything at all, President Akufo-Addo was able to secure €170 million for the establishment of Development Bank Ghana(DBG) similar to Brazilian Development Bank where Mills-Mahama secured a loan of $105,370,177.09 for the purchase of just E190 Jet,” he added justifying the amount spent by the president on his latest foreign travels.
