Ghana Airports MD yet to be notified of his dismissal – Hassan Tampuli

Hassan Tampuli, a Deputy Minister of Transport, confirmed the removal of Yaw Kwakwa, the Managing Director of the Ghana Airports Company.

Mr. Kwakwa has not been officially told of his dismissal, according to him, because internal processes must be completed first.

“That’s how it’s supposed to be done [terminated].” Because it is a corporation, it is governed by the Corporations Act. As a result, the letter is addressed to the Board Chairman, who will call a board meeting at which all appropriate steps will be done in accordance with the company’s Act,” he explained.

Mr. Tampuli was similarly stumped as to why Mr. Kwakwa was fired.

He did say, however, that the President has the authority to fire anyone without justification.

“I have no idea why he was dismissed because the appointment document does not specify why he was appointed.” The President has the authority to appoint and remove people from office. When the President appoints, he does not offer reasons; similarly, when he dismisses [someone], he does not give reasons.”

After a letter from the Minister of Transport went viral earlier in the day, Mr. Kwakwa denied knowledge of his firing.

His firing comes just days after a disagreement with McDan Aviation over the opening of a private jet terminal.

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 operational procedures disagreements.

This came after the GACL stopped McDan Aviation from operating its private jet services at Terminal 1 of the Kotoka International Airport indefinitely in a letter dated January 31, 2022. (KIA).
