The President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has snubbed everyone, criticizing his use of the taxpayers’ money to travel on a rented private jet outside Ghana.
Pictures, have emerged showing him disembarking from the luxury jet he had lately been renting for his foreign trips.
The dark blue jet with silver markings, has a bathroom, Movie Theater and a queen- sized bed, is currently with him in Serbia for the 60th anniversary of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).
Ghanaian taxpayers are said to be paying something around US$18, 000 per an hour for the use of the jet, although the country has a Presidential jet procured by the John Kufuor administration.
The current administration, has rubbished the Falcon jet, saying it is undesirable for the use of the President, hence planning to acquire a new one.
Interestingly, the rejected presidential jet is being given out to presidents of other countries, including Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea Bissau to use for their foreign trips, because they find it suitable for their use.
Unfortunately, the government is not charging these countries any money, despite paying the private company in Europe from which the luxury plane is being rented.
On Monday, President Akufo-Addo, received the Medal of the Republic of Serbia, the highest state Order, for scaling up ties and cooperation between Ghana and Serbia.
The Order was awarded by decree of the Serbian President, Aleksandar Vučić, at a ceremony at the seat of the Presidency in Belgrade.
A citation accompanying the award said President Akufo-Addo was decorated with the Order “for exceptional merits in developing and strengthening cooperation and friendly relations between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Ghana.”
The ceremony took place on the sidelines of the 60th Anniversary celebrations of the founding of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in the Balkan State.
