On Monday, January 4, 2021, the Presidential Jet was spotted at the Tunisian Carthage Airport taxing to runway 19 around 3 pm as it sets off for Cairo Egypt without President Akufo Addo or Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia aboard.
Both the President and the Vice President were around as they dust up plans for President Akufo Addo’s State of the Nation’s Address.
This has raised eyebrows as to who was aboard the presidential jet. The presidential jet a Falcon 900 with registration number 9G-EXE is currently in Cairo Egypt after in landed there around 6.pm on Monday, January 4, 2021.
Whatsup News’ further tracking of the flight history of the presidential jet shows that since December 23, 2020, the aircraft have been hopping across several strange destinations.
For instance, on December 23, the aircraft was in Congo Brazzaville around 2 pm and landed in Congo Kinshasa 30 minutes later, around 2.39 pm.
On the same day, it landed at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) in the night around 9.38 pm and remained dormant till December 28, 2020, when it took off early in the morning towards the Burkina Faso airport in Ouagadougou and returned that same day.
Later, from December 31, 2020, the presidential jet shuttled between Accra and Kumasi about three times before jetting off to Gao in Mali on January 2, 2021.
From Mali, it hopped on to Algeria on January 4, 2021, before touching down at the Carthage Airport in Tunisia.
This sub-regional taxing has raised eyebrows among aviation watchers because President Akufo Addo was reportedly never on any of those trips from December 23, as he had just returned to Ghana from a week-long trip to London.
It has therefore raised probing questions about who the mysterious passenger of the presidential aircraft was, as each of the trips incurs huge expenditure on taxpayers’ funds.
The purposes of these trips are also not known, as Whatsup News has been unable to get any official confirmation aside from the careful tracking done by Whatsup News using aviation tracking software.
