A presenter with Radio Gold has vented his frustration in plain words to Akufo Addo over the unnecessary spending which is further plunging the country into huge debts.
In new data released by the Bank of Ghana, it revealed that country’s total public debt stock has increased once again.
The debt stock which ended 2020 at GHS291.6 billion, saw about GHS13 billion being added in the first quarter of 2021.
In a video going viral on social media, the angry radio presenter stated that any private jet which would carry the president on his next trip would crash and kill the president.
In his view, Ghana loses nothing should the president die in such a horrific manner.
This follows calls by Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa who criticised President Akufo-Addo over what he described as “expensive” travels.
The legislator said the President has consistently abandoned the presidential aircraft which was used by three former Presidents.
He noted that John Agyekum Kufuor, John Evans Atta Mills and John Mahama all used to travel in the Ghana-owned presidential aircraft.
Mr. Ablakwa, therefore, wondered why Akufo-Addo has decided to abandon the presidential aircraft, causing the country to spend millions of cedis on a private jet.
