Mr. Yaw Kwakwa’s appointment as Managing Director of the Ghana Airports Company Limited has been canceled by President Akufo-Addo.
In a letter to the Board Chairman of the Ghana Airport Company, the Minister of Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, said “in this regard, kindly take the necessary steps to give effect to the directive. I count on your cooperation.”
When the news broke, Mr. Kwakwa was dealing with the media at the McDan terminal while the Transport Committee of Parliament was visiting the facility.
Despite the fact that the letter did not specify the cause for his dismissal, it is widely assumed to be related to the ongoing McDan aviation dispute.
McDan Aviation has announced the suspension of its private jet operations at Kotoka International Airport’s Terminal 1 in order for the company’s management to have negotiations with the Ghana Airport Company Limited over operating procedures disagreements.
This came after the GACL stopped McDan Aviation from conducting its private jet services at Terminal 1 of the Kotoka International Airport indefinitely in a letter dated January 31, 2022. (KIA).
