Akufo-Addo Cruising In His Luxurious Private Jet While We ‘Fight’ Over His ‘Tax Collecting’ Budget – Ablakwa



Lawmaker for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has wondered why President Akufo-Addo will jet off to the United States when the legislative arm of government is in crisis.

The Minority and Majority sides of Parliament have been in a back and forth battle over the the rejection and approval of the 2022 budget.

The budget which was rejected by the Minority on November 26 was approved by the Majority side on November 30.

In all of this, Mr Ablakwa questioned why the President will prefer travelling in his luxury private jet to the 45th annual legislative conference of the black caucus in Atlanta, USA.

He wrote on Facebook: “How incredulous that President Akufo-Addo could afford to jet out of town hobnobbing with American legislators at the 45th annual legislative conference of the black caucus in Atlanta, USA when his own country’s legislature is in crisis — a crisis occasioned by leadership paralysis and a blatant refusal by the government he leads to present a new 2022 budget which addresses the widespread agitations of Ghanaians.”

President Akufo-Addo has amply demonstrated just how much he loves to cruise in his ultra-luxury US$14,000-per-hour executive charter, at the least opportunity, but not at this time when his backyard is on fire. I sincerely wonder how he will be perceived by these US legislators with all the distressing news from Ghana. Our democracy is at the crossroads and this is the time for leadership—a listening, caring, sensitive, and bridge-building leadership that takes us away from the edge of the precipice.”
