Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin says the Defence Minister, Dominic Nitiwul has already begun the processes for Ghana to procure the new jet.
This comes after series of exposé by North Tongu lawmaker, Okudzeto Ablakwa concerning President Akufo-Addo’s taste for luxurious travels by hiring expensive private jets.
Addressing the press Monday, September 27, 2021, Eugene Arhin said: “You would recollect that when the government of President Kufuor left office in 2008, it had procured two jets – the current Falcon and a bigger one but for one reason or the other, the bigger jet was cancelled, and we were left with just one. That has happened, but you will recall that the Defence Minister stated clearly that the government has decided to buy a bigger jet to save us from all these troubles.”
“I don’t want to go into the details, but I am sure that when the Minister gets the opportunity, he will give further information on what the government is doing in that respect, but I am sure of the fact that government is already in the process of getting a bigger jet for use”, he disclosed.
