Minister for Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has responded to widespread claims that she hired a private jet to go campaigning for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in some parts of the Northern Regions.
Multiple reports of the Minister flying with a private jet for campaign purposes in the North went rife in some online portals and social media on Monday, 5th October, 2020.
According to the Mrs Owusu-Ekuful, she traveled to Tamale from Accra on board an African World Airlines, a domestic courier on 28th September, 2020.
The Ablekuma West legislator in Facebook post today [Tuesday], attached a copy of her flight ticket as she also took a swipe at her detractors.
“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,” excerpts of her lost read.

SETTING THE RECORDS STRAIGHT: I FLEW TO TAMALE WITH AFRICA WORLD
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!!
