Pamela Djamson-Tettey has been appointed as the new managing director of Ghana Airports Company Ltd (GACL), an official statement issued on Thursday (17 February 2022) said.

The appointment follows an emergency meeting by the board of Ghana Airports Company Ltd on Wednesday (16 February) after Yaw Kwakwa submitted his resignation, the statement from the company said.

Kwakwa was sacked on 9 February.

Below is the full statement from GACL:

Akufo-Addo did not err in sacking MD

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo followed due process in sacking the managing director of Ghana Airports Company Ltd, the deputy transport minister Hassan Tampuli has said.

Yaw Kwakwa learned of his dismissal as the managing director of GACL in the news on Wednesday, while touring the private jet terminal of Kotoka International Airport.

 

A cross-section of the public has questioned the manner in which the managing director was sacked, saying it was unfair and unprofessional.

However, speaking to Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Thursday 10 February, Tampuli said the letter of Kwakwa’s dismissal was addressed to the GACL board for further action.

“The letter was addressed to the chairman of the board and not addressed to the managing director. So, the board was now supposed to [call] a meeting and convey the information.

“It is rather unfortunate that some people circulated the letter and then the letter was made  public … if that was the intention, it would have been put in the public, but the process had started and yesterday the board held a meeting to activate the process,” Tampuli said.

Dismissal

A letter dated 4 February 2022 and signed by Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, the Minister of Transport, said: “His Excellency the President of the Republic, per letter No OPS127/22/104 dated January 2022, has directed that the appointment of Mr Yaw Kwakwa as the managing director of the Ghana Airports Company Limited be terminated.”

The exact reason for Kwakwa’s sacking is not yet known.

Ghana Airports Company Ltd has been in the news recently following a back and forth with McDan Aviation over the launch of the private jet services company and permission to operate at Kotoka Airport.
