Presidential Jet to Undergo Repairs for Four Months

President Akufo-Addo may be compelled to use commercial flights for all his foreign travels for the next four months as JoyNews has been informed that the presidential jet is due for major repair works.

According to the Defence Minister, Dominic Nitiwul, it would be flown to France, where it will be until, at least, October, 2022.

“By the end of this month, we will not have a presidential jet because the one we have is going to France for re-service; it’s one of the reasons the President will not use it for four to five months,” he said in an interview with JoyNews’ Evans Mensah.

Since last year, the Minority in Parliament had criticised the President for using what they describe as luxurious private jets for his travels when the official presidential jet was still in good condition.

But the Minister, in interview on JoyNews PM Express on Tuesday, stated that the President has been using the presidential jet for all travels within Africa and West Africa.

“We only advised the President not to use it for very long journeys but all the movements within Africa, all the short movements within West Africa, that’s the plane the President uses,” the Bimbilla legislator added.
