Workers of the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) have embarked on a demonstration to register their displeasure over government’s alleged plan to privatize the company.
They claim government, through the Aviation Ministry intends to hand over the company to a Turkish investor and they cannot allow that to happen.
At the protest outside the premises of the company from where JoyNews’ Henry Kwasi Badu reports, the workers clad in red attires and arm bands want the plans aborted.
They also invoked curses on those involved in the decision.
This demonstration comes days after the Aviation Minister dismissed reports that the Kotoka International Airport had been sold to a foreign entity.
Urging the public to disregard the reports, sector Minister, Joseph Kofi Adda said government was, however, deliberating with stakeholders including the GACL a proposed Strategic Partnership Arrangement between GACL and TAV-SUMMA Consortium to improve service delivery and expansion of infrastructure at the Airport.
This, he said, was to help achieve the Government’s vision of making Ghana the Aviation Hub within the West Africa sub region.
