    Commissioning of Kumasi Airport is similar to serving fufu devoid of soup – Asiedu Nketiah tells govt

    The National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has criticized President Akufo-Addo’s decision to commission the Prempeh I International Airport in Kumasi while it is still under construction.

    He questioned the wisdom of inaugurating a project that is not yet finished, suggesting that waiting for its completion would have been more prudent than rushing for political gain.

    In a video shared by Nana Yaa Brefo on Instagram, Asiedu Nketiah expressed his disbelief, stating, “If it had been completed, aeroplanes would have landed there. It’s like making fufu without soup and asking us to eat. I’ve already mentioned that the president’s judgment should be examined.”There are bulldozers working everywhere, and you’re telling me it’s finished,” he stated.

    He emphasized the need to examine the president’s judgment, pointing out ongoing construction activities at the site.

    Regarding the commissioning of the airport, the splendid Agyemang Prempeh I International Airport in Kumasi was officially opened on May 10, 2024.

    TV3 and GTV Ghana showcased the airport’s interior through a video, highlighting the newly installed facilities available for public use.

    The interior design features strategically organized operational sections, with glass walls on staircases to enhance visual aesthetics. Visitors are greeted with the welcoming sign “Nante Yie,” meaning “safe journey,” at the entrance.

    The airport is expected to elevate the Ashanti Region’s international profile and contribute to the local economy’s prosperity.

    The launch event was attended by various stakeholders and government agencies, marking the facility’s official commencement of public operations.

    During his address, President Akufo-Addo expressed his satisfaction with the project’s completion and addressed skeptics who doubted its realization.
