Gov’t blows $23M on Kumasi Airport renovation

Government spent US$23,829,247.4 on rehabilitation of the Kumasi
Airport runway alone, a document sighted by citifmonline.com has
revealed.

The document was presented to Parliament by the Ministry of Transport
and signed by the Chief Director at the Ministry, T A Selby.

President John Dramani Mahama in December 2014 inaugurated the Kumasi
Airport after the runway which is about two kilometers was renovated.

There were other renovations at the airport including lighting, drains
among others, but there was a different budget to fund those projects.

The rehabilitation was to raise the airport to international standard
and also allow planes to take off and fly at night.

The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) accused government of
bloating the amount spent on the rehabilitation work but
governmentvehemently denied the claims at the time.

Some checks conducted by citifmonline.com revealed that Ethiopia built
three new Airports with US$64 million.
