The Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) says it has revised its decision to interdict a staff who conducted a pre-boarding search on the National Security Minister.
In a statement dated September 13, the GACL said the decision is due to “further consultations and facts which have since come to its attention.”
The company however noted that “the Committee of Enquiry shall proceed with its mandate as spelt out in the Convening Order”.
A security officer at the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) was earlier interdicted for conducting a pre-boarding search on the National Security Minister.
In a letter dated September 8, GACL explained that Awudu Basit’s search of Albert Kan-Dapaah at the VVIP Lounge at the Kumasi Airport was embarrassing.
The letter signed by the Company’s officer in charge of human capital and officer service, R. S. Tagoe also noted that the search created a “negative impression” for it.
“In view of the negative impression it cast on the company’s image and integrity, Management has decided to thoroughly investigate the circumstances leading to this incident,” it added.
As a punitive measure, the GACL advised that Mr Basit “will be paid two-thirds of his salary during the period of interdiction.”
Meanwhile, some Ghanaians have expressed their sentiments about the interdiction.
According to them, the National Security Minister is not above the law, and therefore he is not beyond a search.
Others have, however, criticised the said officer but condemned the resultant interdiction.
