Mensah Thompson, embattled Executive Director of the of pro-opposition pressure group, Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) who is alleged to be under criminal investigation by the Ghana Police Service about his recent comment on Ghana’s Presidential jet appears to feel abandoned by people who he expected to come to his aid in times of trouble.
He believes that his current situation with the Ghana Air Force (GAF) about his comment that Ghana’s Presidential Jet, the Falcon EX jet was used by relatives of the President on a trip to the UK just for Christmas shopping has broadened his mind to know who his true friends and allies are.
Mensah Thompson wrote on his Facebook timeline, “Times like this are so surreal, you get to see who your true friends are, who your true enemies are and who your true allies!.
He has therefore decided to pay attention to the issues because he alone and have nobody.
“Keep your head up, listen carefully, watch closely…in the end you are all you got!!,” he noted.
Mensah Thompson has been reported to the Ghana Police Service for publication of false news about Presidential aircraft of the Ghana Air Force.
He has admitted lying against President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo about the usage of the Presidential jet by relatives of the President for a shopping trip to the United Kingdom between 20th and 30th of December 2021.
He has therefore apologised to the Ghana Armed Forces for lying about misused of the Presidential aircraft.
GAF held a meeting with Mensah Thompson and informed him about their intention to take action against him for publication of false news and issued statement to discredit his claim.
Out of fear, the supposed National Democratic Congress (NDC) affiliate quickly rushed to his Facebook timeline before the GAF issued a statement to expose his falsehood.
Prior to his apology, Mensah Thompson took to his Facebook that “So between the 20th and 30th of December, 2021l, during the Christmas, the children of a close relative of the President took Ghana’s Presidential Jet, the Falcon EX jet on a trip to the UK just for Christmas shopping.
They didn’t go alone, they went with their friends and partied in the sky all through the trip, taking snap videos and flaunting their lucky adventure.
“Ghana has spent close to half a billion dollars in the last two years renting private jets for our President, whiles his family members continue to lavish in our rejected aircraft at the expense of the poor taxpayer.
