“He [Akufo-Addo] has returned to his grossly insensitive and reckless ways of profligate travelling in ultra-luxurious charters.
“Probably thinking he will escape our unimpeachable surveillance if he switched companies, President Akufo-Addo on this occasion decided to abandon his favourite LX-DIO operated by Global Jet Luxembourg and opted for German-based private jet operator — K5-Aviation,” he posted on Facebook, Friday, June 24, 2022.

He said Akufo-Addo ordered their top-of-the-range and most expensive aircraft in their collection — the Airbus ACJ319 registered D-Alex.

Mr Ablakwa tracked Akufo-Addo’s alleged expensive private jet flights in the past. His campaign against the luxurious private jet flights forced Nana Akufo-Addo to fly commercial a few times.

However, in his new Facebook post, Mr Ablakwa said the president’s recent trip to Belgium and Rwanda on Sunday, June 19, to Brussels, Belgium and Kigali, Rwanda cost the taxpayer €480,000, or GH¢4.1million.

  • Master bedroom with double bed and connecting bathroom with shower;
