A respected member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has described President Nana Akufo-Addo as a dishonest person for deliberately keeping quiet about important issues.
Dr Richard Amoako Baah said the president should not, for instance, be keeping quiet about his expensive private jet charter for international travels.
“He is not honest. Things happen that he is supposed to come out and say something…No. He will keep quiet like he doesn’t hear anything,” the political scientist was quoted by Kasapa News in a report published on July 5, 2022.
He also joined many to criticise the president for renting expensive luxurious private jets for his international travels as if the presidential jet had been cursed.

“I will understand [if] he takes commercial flight; first-class, and reserve three seats around him. You are secure. Sleep.
“But he says no. He wants luxury. He wants to take a bath on the plane before the morning. That alone is worth millions,” he joined the fray of critics of the president’s alleged expensive private jet flights.
