President Akufo-Addo has sacked the Managing Director for Ghana Airport Company Limited, Yaw Kwakwa.
A letter from the Minister of Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, pointed out that the President has directed that the MD’s appointment be terminated since 31st January 2022.
The reason for the action was not stated in the letter, but some have attributed it to the standoff between the Ghana Airport Company and the private businessman McDan Aviation.
GACL ordered the newly launched McDan Aviation to suspend the use of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) until further notice.
In a letter signed on January 31, by the Managing Director of the Airports Company, Yaw Kwakwa, he referenced a notice to the company to suspend its inauguration of the Private Jet Terminal last Friday, which was not adhered to.
“We note with concern your failure to comply with the directive despite the outstanding issues on the prior terms and conditions for the use and operations of Terminal 1 as a Private Jet Terminal.
“Management has consequently directed the suspension of your use of Terminal 1 until further notice.”
The CEO of McDan Aviation has been “requested to relinquish the keys to enable Management to undertake a Joint Inventory by close of business day, Monday, January 31, 2022.”
