The Divisional Union of the Ghana Airports Company Union has directed all staff to withdraw their services from the Kotoka International Airport, beginning today 26th February, 2021.
The affected services include screening of pre-board passengers and access control, fire safety/cover for all aircrafts, water supply and sewage treatment as well as public announcement and flights display.
In a statement, the union that is a member of the Public Sector Workers Union, said the action has become necessary following the Airports Company board attempt to shelve the report of an investigative committee comprising the Ministry of Aviation, Senior Management and the PSWU which confirms the mismanagement and abuse of office levelled against the Managing Director, Yaw Kwakwa.
“We believe the only way to turn the fortunes of the company is the removal of the Managing Director”, the statement explained.
It concluded saying “the general public and airport operators are hereby notified”.
The board and MD of the Ghana Airports Company has come under pressure in recent times about alleged mismanagement of the firm.
This has created some tension within the organization.
