The Minister of Communications, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has discounted media reports that she flew on a private jet to campaign in the northern part of the country.
In a Facebook post, Mrs Owusu-Ekuful denied the media reports and posted her boarding pass for a commercial flight dated September 28.
She posted: “I didn’t know Africa World Airline is now a private jet!!! I flew to Tamale on 28th September, last week Monday, en route 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”.
The reports of her said trip to the Upper East and Upper West regions had suggested that Mrs Owusu-Ekuful and two other persons were flown by a crew of two on a mid-sized Challenger CL 604 private jet.
The reports indicated that 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 and afterwards jetted off to Haiti.
