The Brazilian Government will provide Ghana with a credit facility to acquire a transporter jet for the Ghanaian Air Force.

The air force will be able to increase its operational efficiency with the acquisition of the 90-seater ERJI90 aircraft from Brazil’s Embraer.

It will also enable the air force to reduce dependence on the UN for hiring jets to move troops.

Ghanaian Vice-President John Dramani Mahama was quoted by Peace FM Online as saying that the final agreement for the purchase was subject to parliamentary approval.

The Ghanaian Air Force sent a technical team to Embraer to sort out details of the aircraft.

Mahama has requested that Embraer sets up a mechanised facility in Ghana to help maintain the aircraft used by the Ghanaian armed forces.
