Even Togo has a national airline – Kennedy Agyapong criticizes NPP’s failure to establish a national carrier

Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong wants the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addoto take seriously and realize the idea of creating a national Airline for Ghana.

Copied from:Ghana newsAccording to the MP, whiles the ruling government has failed to make any progress in reacquiring a national airline, the opposition NDC has found the need and has captured it in their manifesto going into the December polls. 

“It is a disgrace to us. For this one, I am pleading with President Akufo-Addo, in our next term, a national airline should be acquired. Even Cote D’Ivoire, Togo and Burkina Faso all have national airlines,” he stated in a discussion on Net2 TV on Tuesday night. 

The businessman mentioned that he is willing to invest $2.5 million in the state airline and called on President Akufo-Addo to ensure its establishment. 

He faulted the PNDC government of former President Jerry John Rawlings for collapsing Ghana Airways which operated between 1958 and 2005. 

“The reason I vowed never to board the Ghana Airways again is because there was a time we were coming home for Christmas. When we were going to board the plane, we were told the 31st December Women’s Movement was going to have a programme and some things they were importing had taken up space in the plane. The 31st December Women’s Movement, their things were packed on the plane leaving ours in the rain at the Kennedy Airport. Yes, I am telling you, they collapsed it,” he said.
