North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said that perhaps the only positive outcome of an International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout is that they would not allow President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to spend €20,000 an hour chartered luxury jet for his travels.
Mr Ablakwa who has been criticizing the President for not using the Presidential Jet but rather hiring what he believes are expensive jets, said the President’s conduct cost the suffering taxpayer over GHS34million in 13 months.
“Perhaps the only positive outcome of an IMF bailout is that they wouldn’t allow Prez Akufo-Addo to obstinately continue with his insensitive, wasteful, oligarchic €20,000 an hour chartered luxury jet travels which have cost the suffering taxpayer over GHS34million in 13 months,” Mr Ablakwa tweeted.
On Friday, July 1 President Akufo-Addo gave instruction to Mr Ofori-Atta to commence the engagements with the IMF following a telephone conversation between the President and the IMF Managing Director, Miss Kristalina Georgieva, conveying Ghana’s decision to engage with the Fund.
The Ministry of Information announced this in a statement.
