• Kumasi-based Kessben FM have reacted to a comment in their network

• The comment relates to claims that a former First Lady hired a jet to go and watch a football match

• It was made by a former national officer of the ruling NPP


Kumasi-based network, Kessben Media, has dissociated itself from a recent comment by a former Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party, NPP, lawyer Yaw Adomako Baafi.

The channel said it had no association with Baafi’s comments to the effect that former First Lady, Lordina Mahama had once upon a time hired a jet to go and watch a football match.

The said comment was aired on the September 30, 2021, edition of Kessben Radio / TV’s morning show programme, Maakye. The National Democratic Congress, NDC, subsequently issued “Fake News” disclaimers on the said comment.

The discussion was within the context of the recent public and political debate over presidential travels and the propriety of plans by the government to purchase a new presidential jet.

NDC Member of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has been at the forefront of exposing what he calls “expensive luxurious” private jet trips by the president for his overseas engagements.

The government has also recently announced plans to acquire a new presidential jet.
