The Ministry of Finance has disbursed €7 million out of the remaining €9 million to complete the Kumasi International Airport.

The project was scheduled to be completed in June 2023 but faced delays due to funding constraints.

So far  90 percent of the work on the project is complete.

The new Finance Minister, Dr Mohammed Amin Adam, instructed contractors to complete and hand over the facility within two months during an inspection.

“This project would’ve been completed some time ago, but for the financial challenge that we faced. We have made efforts to address it. Part of the outstanding amount of money that was to be paid for the project to resume has been paid to the contractor.

“What is left is €2 million which we are going to pay within one week, so that the contractor will have no excuse as far as funding is concerned. I’m impressing on them to make sure that by the end of April, they bring a closure to this project, so we can begin to use it,” he said.

Jorge Tavares de Almeida, the Project Director at Contracta Construction, the firm in charge of the project told the minister that it is only left with the work on the runway extension and control tower.

However, he said some additional work at the Kumasi International Airport can only be completed within three months.

“The old terminal will be demolished to comply with rules governing international airport standards because the old facilities are very close to the runways. We will need at least 3 months to complete the project,” he pleaded.
