We Are Against Giving 66% Share Of Kotoka Airport To Private Firm – Mahama

Published

on


The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the former president of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has said the NDC is against attempts by the government to hand over 66% share of the Kotoka International Airport to TAM-SUMMA Consortium, a Turkish company.

According to Mahama, it is strange why the Airport which was valued to be at about GH¢5 billion and so it’s strange that the government intends to cede 66% of its control of the airport to the private company in exchange for $70 million.

“When we were in office, a valuation study of the Kotoka Airport was done and it was valued at over GH¢ 5 billion. It also had an insured value in the region of GH¢3 to GH¢4 billion because a lot of money had been invested in the airport and it had become one of the five best airports in Africa.”

“[Now we are seeing] a strange development where a Turkish company is being given the airport; to take over the airport and run it. For $70 million we are giving 66% of the airport to a Turkish company. We are against it. It is wrong,” John Mahama said.

He added that, the government can find alternative in raising money to keep the airport functioning other than the currently proposed arrangements with TAM-SUMMA Consortium.

“Even if you sold some of the lands around the airport you will be able to raise far more than $70 million,” he noted.

The former President also suggested that the government should consider triggering clauses within the airport expansion project loan agreement to enable a rescheduling of the facility.

You Can Still Vote Even If Your Name Is Not In The Voters Register – EC Assures Ghanaians

Published

on


The Electoral Commission has assured Ghanaians that no eligible Ghanaian voter will be left out of the 2020 elections.

According to the commission, despite the concerns raised by the opposition NDC to the effect that some names are missing from the register, such persons can still be allowed to register.

In an interview with TheGhanaReport portal, the acting Director of Public Affairs of EC, Mrs Sylvia Annoh, explained the EC could still refer to the primary data collected during the registration exercise.

“Once legitimately, you have registered and you have your name on the voter list, you will not be disenfranchised,” she told the website after an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting to address concerns by political parties.

Video: Despite Media Employees Take On Akufo-Addo Aide For Insulting Fadda Dickson

Published

on


Some employees of the Despite Media Group have jumped to the defence of their Managing Director, Fadda Dickson after he was insulted by an aide to the President, Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe.

Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe descended heavily on the Managing director of Despite Media, Fadda Dickson for writing to beg the NDC to rescind their decision of boycotting Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Morning show.

This was after the NDC officially severed ties with Peace FM’s flagship program, Kokrokoo a few months ago after their attempt to get the Station to withdraw their former Central Regional Chairman, Allotey Jacobs from the program failed.

Though veteran Journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako alleged on the show last week that the NDC was begging behind the scenes to be allowed to return the show, the NDC issued a statement through their communication’s directorate that they had no intentions of returning to that show.

Following the NDC’s statement by Sammy Gyamfi, Peace FM issued a formal apology letter yesterday signed by their Managing Director, Fadda Dickson, begging the Party to let sleeping dogs lie.

This action by the Managing director did not go down well with the Presidential staffer who described Fadda Dickson’s actions as lacking common sense.

However, in defence of their able director, some employees of the media giants have described the actions of the presidential staffer as disrespectful, wondering how a young man could hurl such invective at an elderly man.

Published

on


Western Togoland separatists have ordered the country’s security services within their boundaries to leave within 24 hours.

In a statement, the group further ordered the security services to leave their weapons and ammunitions behind.

Under the leadership of Togbe Yesu Kwabla Edudzi II, the group blocked all roads leading to and from the Volta Region and warned the roadblocks will remain on the roads until “Ghana agrees to come to the negotiation table, with expected UNO facilitation.”

“All political activities within the new State are banned with immediate effect. Certain Radio stations are temporarily designated Western Togoland (WTL) State Radios till further notice, and all Media Houses within WTL are to focus their programming predominantly on WTL issues until further notice,” the statement added.

They allegedly took over the Aveyime and Mepe Police stations, overpowering the police officers in the process and looting the Station’s armoury.
