Either KIA MD is removed or risk collapse of airport


Summary short_text

The outrage of the workers led to the disruption of all departures at the Kotoko International Airport on Friday morning following the indefinite withdrawal of services of all general staff at the airport on the orders of the Divisional Union of the Public Services Workers Union at the Ghana Airport Company Limited, reports citinewsroom.com.
According to the report, the aggrieved workers say the future of the company is being for the MD. "Our expectation is that the Managing Director must be removed. If we allow this man to continue sitting in office, the fortunes of this company can only dwindle and the staff will not be ready for that. If he is not removed we are not backing down. We will continue increasing our levels of withdrawal of service until we get what we want," Divisional Chairman of the PSWU at the Airport Company Limited Abdul-Issaka Bamba had earlier stressed.

We are here to compete and have a strong foothold in the market


Summary short_text

He explained the readiness of his company, which has been in the Ghanaian market since 2005 but only now fully operating a local plant, to compete and become an easy reference point for feed supply.
