- Sam Nartey George has mocked critics questioning why Ghana Gas helicopters are with the Ghana Air Force
- The three $150 million helicopters were reported missing a day ago
- A former deputy minister revealed that they were in fact with the Ghana Air Force
Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ningo-Prampram constituency, Hon. Sam Nartey George, has openly ridiculed critics of the decision to park four Ghana Gas helicopters with the Ghana Air Force.
In a Facebook post that would rival Nana Kwame's - the obscure Facebook user who became instantly popular due to his epic reply to a post by Manasseh Azuri Awuni - one, Hon. Sam George has taken a comic swipe at critics who've sensationalized the decision to park Ghana Gas helicopters with the Ghana Air Force.
Over the last couple days reports that three helicopters belonging to the Ghana Gas Company that cost taxpayers $150 million had gone missing hit the public domain. This prompted a former deputy power minister of the erstwhile Mahama administration, Mr. John Jinapor, to speak out saying that the helicopters were stationed with the Ghana Air Force.

The former deputy minister stated that the helicopters were stationed with the Ghana Air Force simply because they military possessed the expertise to "handle" the helicopters.
However some still questioned the logic behind stationing the $150 million metal birds with the Air Force instead of leaving them with the Ghana Gas Company... and then chimed in the Ningo-Prampram legislator.

In a post on his personal Facebook profile, Hon. Sam Nartey George concedes that leaving the helicopters with the Ghana Gas Company is a "Very nice point". However he also comically hints that the same logic could be applied with the Presidential jet, saying, "Can we also then have the President Jet parked on the front lawn of the Flagstaff House?".
