The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is warning of plane crashes should government fail to reclaim legitimate lands meant for the setting up of communication equipment.
According to a statement signed by the authority, large stretches of land at the at the Adenta (La Nkwantanan) and Labadi (La Wireless) for aviation development and expansion had been encroached and taken over by the erstwhile Kufuor administration in 2007 for residential purposes.
“We want to reiterate that if the said land is not released for the installation of this vital equipment, the system can shut down and we may not be able to provide Air Traffic Services over the ocean and other portions of the airspace. This will have safety and security implications for the country and the industry in general,” excerpts of the statement warned.
Meanwhile government is yet to respond to these claims as the aviation authority is said to be in talks with the transport and local government ministries for a resolution over the issue.
