Buying New Jet But Akufo-Addo Will Be An Ex-president Before It Arrives – Nitiwul



Dominic Nitiwul, Minister of Defence has confirmed that consultations are underway to purchase a new Presidential jet.

He said the move was necessitated by a request from the Ghana Airforce for a main (wide-body) jet to conduct government business.

Nitiwul disclosed further that he had contacted two manufacturers – Boeing and Airbus – and that they were able to deliver the jet in about three years, which means the current President will be out of office by the time it is delivered if an order is placed now.

“When I contacted both Boeing and Airbus, they told me that it would take about three years for them to be able to deliver a new aircraft to Ghana.

“What it simply means is that if I were to make a decision today and the Ghana Government was to have money for the Ministry of Defence to purchase an aircraft, the least time for the aircraft to arrive would be the first quarter of 2025. This current President would not sit in the aircraft as President….” he stated.
