- The minister of aviation, Kofi Adda, has denied rumours that Kotoka International Airport will soon be privatised
- He explained that no such report has come to his attention and for that matter it should be disregarded
The minister of aviation, Kofi Adda, has denied reports that the government intends to privatise the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
According to him, he is not aware of such an arrangement, and the report should therefore be taken with a pinch of salt.
His comments come after reports of attempts to privatise by handing over the operations of the airport to a company, Tav Airport Holding Company Limited.
According to a draft memo to cabinet circulating in the media, government, through the ministry of aviation is to cede the management of the Kotoka International Airport to a private company.
The company, according to the draft memo, is being considered for a terminal management contract or a concession agreement for the KIA.
Under the proposed terminal management contract, terminals within the airport will be managed by the airlines while the ownership of the airport and its operations remain the responsibility of Ghana.
For the concession agreement, the concession manager will be responsible for “all aspects of the day to day operations.”
Per a report by Myjoyonline.com, Adda said the information is false and nothing short of political gimmicks.
