Akufo-Addo ‘boys’ chartering $20k-per-hr flights for their families, stashing away hefty sums of our money– Mahama

Former President John Mahama

Notwithstanding all the socio-economic difficulties, young people in the governing New Patriotic Party, “continue to observe the opulence of the administration’s officials and their families chartering private jets at $20,000 per hour for trips that our own Falcon executive jet could have done”, former President John Mahama has said.

In a live broadcast of his ‘Mahama Conversations’ on social media, the flagbearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress said: “And as the Minister of Defence explained, it [the jet] had no shower for a presidential bath.”

Mr Mahama said Ghana’s youth have further experienced how “a minister could stash millions of dollars in her home”, adding: “And only God knows the full extent of Ghanaian taxpayers’ money that has been stashed away by many others.”

He then promised: “But I say to the good people of Ghana that, working with Ghanaians and international anti-corruption partners, we shall do all that is humanly possible to retrieve such wrongly acquired wealth.”
