Ghana’s Presidential jet,the falcon 900 was not found among various Presidential jets that arrived in Glasgow for COP26.
Its reported the President of the Republic of Ghana did not travel with the Presidential jet to the COP26 summit in Glasgow.
Many Heads of States including President Joe Biden of the United States of America arrived in Glasgow with a 31 years old Air force One,French President Emmanuel Macron also arrived in Cotam 001 jet which was commissioned in 2010 ,same year as Ghana’s falcon 900.
Others that traveled with their Presidential jets are Jordan,Namibia, Germany, Nigeria etc.
Unfortunately, Ghana’s iconic flag was conspicuously missing at the Glasgow parade.
It’s widely reported that Ghana’s President traveled in yet another rented jet to Glasgow at the expense of the tax payer.
It’s alleged the President of Ghana prefers a bigger and spacious jet which has a Cinema,a bathroom, luxurious bedroom etc.
The cost of the rented jet is currently not known.
Speculations hold the cost of the travel between USD 14000 & USD17000 per hour.
A lot of Ghanaians have been speaking to this .
Baah Kwaku a citizen based in Akropong Akuapem said ‘ It’s sad for the President to continue to rent a jet whiles falcon 900 is in good state which could hav save the tax payer a lot of money.
Another worried Citizen Azumi said ” It’s sad the President who campaigned to save the public purse is rather living a luxurious life at the expense of his people,we are suffering,no job, everything is expensive in this country and if this is how the President will pay the good people of Ghana back then fine”. The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has really justified the “Yentie Obiaaaa” mantra.
