Former Minister for Power, Dr Kwabena Donkor

Ghana Gas helicopters not missing – Kwabena Donkor
Former Minister for Power, Dr Kwabena Donkor has
vehemently refuted claims that some helicopters
purchased by the erstwhile Mahama administration
for Ghana Gas cannot be accounted for.

There have been reports that three helicopters for
Ghana Gas Company purchased at a cost of 150
million dollars by the previous government are

The co-chair of the Ghana Extractive Industry
Transparency Initiative (GHEITI), Dr. Steve
Manteaw who is also a member of the Public
Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC) said
“sources close to Ghana Gas revealed that indeed
the helicopters were bought and that they are
being kept somewhere” adding “and I’m not too sure

He added: “so it is early days yet to conclude
that they are missing and that for now we just
couldn’t find them at the project but it does not
mean that they are missing. So we just need to
find out where they are and in which condition and
shape they are in now.”

But speaking to Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on
Kasapa 102.5FM Wednesday, Dr Kwabena Donkor stated
that the claim is a clear demonstration of the
substandard nature of the governing NPP government
as the helicopters are securely parked in the
hangars of the Ghana Airforce at the Air force
base in Accra.

“I’m baffled by this claim, if we put out such
baseless statements into the public domain, we
inadvertently disagrace the Ghana Armed Forces
which is regarded highly in Africa and the rest of
the world because the helicopters are safe in
their custody. What stops anyone from first
contacting the Ghana Air Force before churning out
such falsehood.”
