Okudzeto reveals that Akufo-Addo hired a private jet that costs €20,000 per hour.

Incorrigible Akufo-Addo has done it again. 

On his most recent two travels to the US and the UK, he pretended to be a new man by flying commercial, but now he's back to his obscenely irresponsible and wasteful methods of splurging on extravagant charters. 

President Akufo-Addo on this occasion chose K5-Aviation, a German-based private jet operator, over his preferred LX-DIO operated by Global Jet Luxembourg, likely in the belief that doing so would allow him to evade our unquestionable observation. 

Since June 2011, the German National Aviation Authority (Luftfahrt-Bundesamt, LBA) has granted K5-Aviation a license to fly their opulent fleet. 

As per usual, President Akufo-Addo bought their most expensive and top-tier aircraft, the Airbus ACJ319. It's listed as D-Alex. 

The device has the serial number 5963, Type Code A319, and Mode S 3C70B8. 

Considering that it is a more pricey luxury carrier, some of its oligarchic features are: A master bedroom with a double bed and an adjacent bathroom with a shower; 2 more bedrooms; 3 bathrooms; Gogo 2Ku high speed Wi-Fi, up to 70 Mbit/sec for streaming and video calls (charged extra); Video on demand and DVD including a 55" screen; music streaming; PlayStation; external cameras with tailfin view; airshow and a satellite phone; master bathroom with walk-in shower; Air Humidification system; Airshow and 5 external cameras; and Gogo 2Ku high speed Wi-Fi, up to 70 Mbit/sec for streaming and video calls. 

The 19-VVIP-passenger D-Alex is praised for its 5,600 nm = 10,400 km range; outfitted with 5 auxiliary center tanks for intercontinental range and non-stop flights up to 12 hours; maximum take-off weight of 76,500 kg; and an amazing Maximum altitude of 41,000 ft = 12,400 m. 

The Ghanaian government is paying €20,000 per hour for this opulent monster. 

In order to attend the 26th Meeting of the Heads of Government of the Commonwealth of Nations in Kigali, Rwanda, and the 15th Edition of the European Development Days Forum in Brussels, Belgium, President Akufo-Addo will travel to Belgium and Rwanda starting on Sunday, June 19, 2022. We can confirm a conservative cost of €480,000.00. 

The 480,000 Euros, which are calculated using the total travel time of 21 hours plus other industry fees, convert to approximately 4.1 million Ghana Cedis at the current exchange rate. 

But I must applaud First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo for honorably traveling to Kigali on Ghana's Presidential Jet, which took her about 4 hours, 49 minutes. Her trust in Ghana's Presidential Jet is inspiring and incredibly impressive. The nation of Ghana is really proud of her. 

President Akufo-wastefulness Addo's and obstinacy at a time when Ghanaians are struggling with rising living costs must require a particularly unusual form of insulting insensitivity.
