Member of the Parliamentary Foreign Affairs committee Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has made a revelation that has stunned Ghanaians to the core.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa in a write up has revealed that the government of Ghana reportedly spent a whopping $140,000 to hire a private jet to fly Adwoa Safo from the USA to Ghana to cast vote on the E-levy.

In Okudzeto’s lengthy post on his social media pages, he revealed that the private jet hired by the government to bring Adwoa Safo should be the concern of Ghanaians and the civil society, not just the 120,000 cedis given to the same MP by the Chief of Staff.

According to him,  the private jet Gulfstream G-550 registered HB-JOE and operated by Premium Jet AG costs $4,800 per hour and had to fly empty from Belgium to the USA, picked Adwoa Safo and brought her to Ghana, and fly back empty.

All the above hours, crew per-diem, landing fees cost $140,000 which is 948,500 cedis in today’s exchange rate.
