The hub would allow planes to fix mechanical faults, maintain avionics instruments and re-fuel amongst others, which would give engineers from top Ghanaian Universities the opportunity to prove their worth.

He said “it’s also a private sector led. We are leading it, but we’ve partnered with Boeing to do the training and we raised half a billion for that project. Plans are going very well and during my book launch I will show this.”

“We will create 400,000 jobs with the airport. We need jobs in this country, for the youth, for everybody. I don’t want anybody the regulators or anybody holding this back because its holding the whole country,” he added.
