The board Chairman of the Ghana Airports Company Paul Adom-Otchere has dismissed claims that the Kotoka International Airport bought 2021 Christmas trees at GHS84,000.
Some social media activists are criticizing the company for what they say is the high price at which they bought the Christmas tree.
Reacting to the claims, the Good Evening Ghana host said this year’s Christmas tree is cheapest over the years.
“The Ghana Airports Company Limited has for many years mounted Christmas inspirations around the terminal area to create a festive atmosphere for passengers and their families coming into the country. The total expenditure of 2021 is the lowest since 2016.
“Two separate suppliers were invited to submit bids. The bids were discussed and discounts obtained. ( We are grateful to Jandel Limited and Favors and Arts),” he wrote on Facebook.
He continued: “The beautiful Christmas tree standing at Terminal 3 and 3 others altogether cost GHC 34,000, which was graciously provided by Jandel Limited at a heavy discount. (We thank Jandel Limited)
“The other inspirations were provided by Favors and Arts for a total cost of GHC 84,000 out of which GHC 50,000 was obtained via sponsorship. All salaries and or bonuses due staff for December have been paid.
“It is ridiculous for anyone to say that the invoices from these two reputable companies were issued in the name of the Board Chairman, that just means the author of such spurious allegations has insufficient acquaintance with corporate workings”.
