Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi has described the recently commissioned Ho Airport as someone’s Single room self-contained.
According to Chairman Wontumi, his reason for describing the new airport as such is because former President Mahama pocket 90% of the funds meant for the project.
”The airport which was built in the Volta Region by former President Mahama is like somebody’s single bedroom house. He lied to us that he spent $25 million on it”, he asserted.
The airport which was completed in 2017 by the John Mahama administration was left to rot. Africa World Airline (AWA) a private-owned airline announced yesterday that it will start flights to Ho airport on a two weeks service from Accra.
Chairman Wontumi also stated that the Kumasi Airport which was upgraded by the John Mahama administration into an International flight destination looks like ” Someone’s Kitchen”
