Attafuah removed as MD of Ghana Airport Company
Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company (GAC), John Attafuah, has been dismissed with immediate effect.
Mr. Attafuah took over from Charles Asare in March 2017.
Sources indicated that the Minister of Aviation, Joseph Kofi Adda, ordered Mr. Attafuah to hand over to his deputy, Yaw Kwakwa until a substantive MD is appointed.
DAILY GUIDE gathered that Mr. Adda signed the dismissal letter of the MD on January 16, 2019.
However, contrary to some media reports yesterday, the Board of Ghana Airport Company, according to DAILY GUIDE’s checks, has not been dissolved.
This paper’s source at the Aviation Ministry confirmed that the Board, headed by Oboshie Sai-Coffie, is still at post.
DAILY GUIDE’s source revealed that the Board of the Ghana Airport Company would meet and issue a statement on the sacking of Mr. Attafuah in due course.
Before his appointment at the Ghana Airport Company, Mr. Attafuah was the Managing Director of Virtual Access Limited, a market research company.
Mr. Attafuah, a management consultant, previously served as the head of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) under the previous Kufuor administration between 2005 and 2009.
