Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu has denied reports suggesting that she flew a private Jet to the Upper East, West and Northern Region for campaigning activities of the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP)
In a post shared on her Facebook page, the Minister posted her boarding pass for a commercial flight dated September 28.
She said “I didn’t know Africa World Airline is now a private jet!!! I flew to Tamale on 28th September, last week Monday, enroute to the upper East Region for a campaign tour primarily to assist the female candidates in Navrongo and Bawku. I also went to Garu, Tempane, Pusiga, Zebilla , Binduri and Bolgatanga. Here is my boarding pass and I actually changed seats and sat in 4 D. Some people have developed a penchant for lying through their teeth.After 28 years of voting for the NDC, the lovely people of this incredibly beautiful part of Ghana have very little to show for it.
They are determined to vote for the NPP for development, progress and prosperity , having seen what three and half years of focused dedicated and visionary leadership of NANA Akufo-Addo has done to transform every aspect of our lives. This feeble attempt to change this fact through half truths, lies and innuendos will fail. I met people who have decided to vote NPP for the first time because of the impact our Planting For Food and Jobs has had on their livelihoods. Others are voting for free SHS.
The Pwalugu dam is a major hit with them. The Bolga-Bawku road construction is ongoing, and they can see Bawku-Polimakom road construction with their own eyes!!!!! NPP’s footprint is in every home. We were welcomed with open arms for the first time ever in Natugnia and other NDC strongholds in Navrongo Central. Binduri, Pusiga, Garu, will fall this time and vote massively for NPP.
Hawa Yakubu’s seat will once more be occupied by an NPP woman, Gabiana, inshallah!! The women of Bolgatanga Central are fired up to sweep Adongo away. I walked the streets and alleyways with them and felt their passion and zeal. NDC, be very afraid for you will lose massively. I SHALL RETURN!!”
Mrs Owusu-Ekuful and two other persons were flown by a crew of two on a mid-sized Challenger CL 604 private jet to the Upper East and West region where she was campaigning for the New Patriotic Party.
According to the reports, the flight departed the Kotoka International Airport on October 3, 2020, around 6 am and landed in Tamale around 7 am the same day. The private jet was said to have flown back empty to the KIA around 7.40 am.
