North Tongu MP Ablakwa Lauds Akufo-Addo for flying commercial to Dubai Expo

Akufo Addo at Dubai Expo 2020Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, MP for North Tongu has commended President Nana Addo Dankwa-Akufo-Addo for flying a commercial flight to the Dubai Expo 2020.

The North Tongu MP has in recent times chastised the president for flying in a luxurious private jet on international assignments at the expense of the taxpayer amidst the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the country’s economy.

Ablakwa said Akufo-Addo’s gesture to fly First Class on Emirates has saved the Ghanaian taxpayer an impressive US$468,000.00. That is equivalent to a staggering GHC3,306,139.20.

“I sincerely applaud President Akufo-Addo for flying commercial to the Dubai Expo as he left Ghana yesterday,” Ablakwa posted on Facebook.

“When our elected officials finally exhibit good judgment, even if it took great struggle from us, we should be courageous and objective to acknowledge their penitent conduct.

“From our unimpeachable and impeccable tracking, this is the first time in at least a year, President Akufo-Addo has jetted out of the continent without using a profligate and sybaritic charter at a profound expense to the suffering Ghanaian taxpayer,” it added.
