Honorable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Member of Parliament for the North Tongu constituency has disclosed that the presidential jet for the Republic of Ghana was flown to France on 30th August, 2022.

According to the North Tongu MP, he can disclose with absolute certainty and without fear of contradiction that a few days before President Akufo-Addo’s current travel to the Netherlands and France, Ghana’s Presidential Jet — the Falcon 900EX was on Tuesday August 30, 2022 flown non-stop to France for a flight time of 6hours and 24minutes from Accra.

He said “It is instructive to note that contrary to what Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr. Eugene Arhin, would want us believe as per his earlier claims that the Presidential Jet is no longer fit to fly direct beyond 6 hours— a dubious claim which now stands discredited; the Presidential Jet on this latest trip was flown direct or non-stop for 6hours and 24minutes to Paris, France.”

Hon Okudzeto further stated that Ghana’s Presidential Jet is still in France as at the 7th of September, 2022 since landing at the Paris Le Bourget International Airport at 3:20pm on August 30, 2022 whiles President Akufo-Addo left Accra on the night of September 3, 2022 aboard KLM after delaying the commercial flight.

Ending his statement, the Honorable member stated that the government owes Ghanaians urgent and important clarifications on whoever used the President’s jet and the purpose for which it was used for the supposed trip.
