McDan’s Private Jet Terminal Closed Down By State Security Two Days After Launch
Starrnews is reporting that the Management of Ghana Airport Company has shut down the offices of McDan Aviation. This follows the recent launch of the company’s private jet terminal owned by private businessman, Daniel Mckorley which was greeted with pomp and pageantry
The move follows refusal of the company to halt the inauguration of the terminal as directed by MD for Ghana Airport Company Yaw Kwakwa over security and safety breaches.
According to Starr News, armed security personnel Monday night stormed the terminal to shut it down.
A letter cited by Union leaders to the Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company expressing support to management as it seeks to ensure adherence to protocols while demanding outstanding financial obligations yet to be met by McDan over the acquisition of the terminal.
A letter signed by the Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company, Yaw Kwakwa, and copied to the Minister of Transport, the Board of the Airport Company, and the National Security Minister, the MD alleged that Mr. Mckorley had breached several standards and norms of the aviation Industry a day to the launch. The MD cited for instance the refusal of Mr. Mckorley to produce a plan of Construction Operation Approval from the Airport Company before the commencement of construction of the private jet terminal.
Despite a warning for the event to be postponed, officials of the aviation company went ahead to hold it.
Divisional Union Chairman of GACL Abdul Issaka Bamba told Starrnews Ghana’s Kotoka International Airport risks downgrading over the breaches outlined in the MD’s letter to McDan.
Mr. Bamba warned union members will not be deployed to the terminal if the concerns are not addressed.
