Ditch rickety jet for new one – Shatta Wale to Akufo-Addo
Dancehall sensation Shatta Wale has urged president Akufo Addo to acquire a new jet if the current one is faulty.
The controversial musician insisted his life is precious, and must preserve it instead of risking his life in the old faulty jet.
The artiste born Charles Nii Armah expressed his concern after the president’s jet reportedly developed a fault after a take off last week.
He decided to share his thoughts on the matter on twitter.
His tweet read,”Mr President ,these same Ghanaians voted for you and so if the Presidential Jet is putting your life in danger please and please ..Buy a new one before these same Ghanaians kill u oo ..Gh we talk too much .. ”
Shatta’s tweets follows reports that president Akufo-Addo and his entourage escaped death by the whiskers following a mid-air fault while returning from 73rd session of the UN General Assembly, in the US.
Our sources say one of the engines of the presidential jet developed a fault after take-off.
The aircraft was assisted to land after Mayday calls.
The president and his entourage returned to Ghana safe on a different plane from Washington.
That was not the first time Ghana’s presidential jet had developed a fault.
In March 2015, it caught fire while attempting to take off from the Kotoka International Airport.
Also on 5 December 2014, it developed a fault while flying President John Mahama, delaying his appearance at the 30th National Farmers Day celebrations in the Western Region.
