It is turning out that the Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL), John Attafuah, is still at post and has not been dismissed as earlier speculated.

According to DAILY GUIDE’s sources, Mr. Attafuah, who worked in the strong room of the Electoral Commission for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the 2016 general elections, has not been given any dismissal letter.

It has emerged that there was a board meeting last Thursday but no issue was raised against Mr. Attafuah.

According to the source, “There was no query raised against him. Mr. Attafuah was at post last Friday, and he is expected at work today.”

Last week, there were various media reports that the GACL boss, who took over from Charles Asare in March 2017, had been removed from office with immediate effect.

Sources indicated that the Minister of Aviation, Joseph Kofi Adda, had ordered Mr. Attafuah to hand over to his deputy, Yaw Kwakwa until a substantive MD is appointed.

It was gathered that Mr. Adda had signed the dismissal letter of the MD on January 16, 2019.

The Board of Ghana Airport Company, according to DAILY GUIDE’s checks, had not been dissolved.

This paper’s source at the Aviation Ministry confirmed that the Board, headed by Oboshie Sai-Coffie, is still at post.

The source revealed that the Board of the Ghana Airport Company would meet and issue a statement on the issue 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.

He played a key role in the compilation of the Pink Sheets that the then opposition candidate Nana Akufo-Addo and two others presented to court as evidence to challenge the validity of the EC’s declaration of John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as President in 2012.
