The Executive Director of one of the vibrant Civil Society Organizations in Ghana, ALliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), Mensah Thompson has alleged that government has already bought the luxurious private jet that President Akufo Addo has been traveling outside the country with.
Mensah Thompson who claimed a person working in the Jubilee House contacted him and relayed the information to him, revealed that the Boeing 737-900ER BBJ3 was bought as far back as 2020. Even before the proposal for the purchase of a new presidential jet was put before parliament in late 2021.
“…for example the luxury jet which we all think the President is renting at £14,000 an hour has been bought!
Yes, they bought the luxury jet, I will bring you details of that later,” Mr. Thompson wrote in a Facebook post sighted by GhanaVanguard.com.

My sources at the Jubilee house contacted me again yesterday and the information is simple, they have resolved to pass the e-levy at all cost when Parliament resumes.
The Minority must be on their guard, the plan for the e-levy is big, they intend to pass it all cost or they have to go to the IMF and that is exactly what they don’t want.
But the question is why are they sooo afraid of going to the IMF?, some people have said oh, they don’t like the propaganda or they don’t want to feel ashamed for taking us back to the IMF…🤣🤣
Ghanaians Paa, smh!!… For how long would we understand that these guys are shameless and they don’t give a shit about your propaganda?
For a people who have borrowed over 300billion cedis with nothing to show for, if the IMF is offering them free money, you say they won’t collect because of your propaganda?
Ghanaians seem to be underestimating these criminals and it hurts…really badly!
So really, why don’t they want to go to the IMF and for that reason they are bent on forcing e-levy down our throats?
The answer is simple…Audit, they are afraid of the IMF’s audit and the things that would be uncovered if the IMF audit their books…period!!
You see the IMF, don’t just throw money at a Country, they first audit your books, look at the numbers and try to either come up with a policy guideline or you come with your homegrown policies and they provide policy credibility and assist you with the necessary technical expertise to manage yourself out of your distress.
That is the first thing the IMF does when any Country goes to them and they are so afraid of the things the IMF would uncover; for example the luxury jet which we all think the President is renting at £14,000 an hour has been bought!
Yes, they bought the luxury jet, I will bring you details of that later.
Why do you think no Minister wants to tell us how much the President spends on his trip?
Nobody wants to perjure themselves, because when next government comes to power he will realise that the jet has been bought far back as early 2020 and the Ministers who lied to Parliament would be in big trouble…thats why no one wants to speak.
The second thing they are afraid of IMF uncovering is Ghana’s debt quagmire, by that I don’t mean the plenty borrowing..No!! How they have borrowed, the crime with all the euro bonds they have contracted with Ofori-Attah’s company. It’s a long debt trap they have set for Ghana, I will tell you about it in a separate write-up.
You see, HON. ISAAC Adongo warned us about this bonds issue, but Ghanaians were not paying attention.
In my next write up, I will explain to you why their interest with Databank being the book runners for all the loans and euro bonds they have contracted is not only because of the mere 2-3% commission they will get but it’s part of a long game of selling the future of Ghana to themselves and their families.
So folks, they are dead scared of going to the IMF because the financial crimes the IMF would uncover if they audit these people, I am not sure they would ever set a foot in any African Country again, they would be shocked to the bone!!
Like I always ask God, whatever we did to deserve these criminals, God please on behalf of the good people of Ghana, I say we are sorry!🙏🙏🙏
