He disclosed that “prior to that the Police had called Power FM asking for the location to our[ASEPA] office, when the complaint they received had details of my[Mensah Thompson] contact which they could have reached out.”

“Well tomorrow at 10AM, in the company of my lawyers, I shall be honoring the invitation of the CID at the CID Headquarters to answer any questions they may have concerning the publication I made in my capacity as the head of a Civil Society Organization with key responsibility to check government and it’s agencies,” he stated in another Facebook post.

The ASEPA boss’ police invitation came after he made allegations about the usage of the Presidential Jet.

According to him, “between the 20th and 30th of December, 2021, 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 tax payer,” he alleged.
