President renames Kumasi Airport as Prempeh I International Airport

The Prempeh I International Airport, the second phase of the Kumasi International Airport, has been put into service.

When it is completed by June of this year, there will be three international airports in the nation, following Accra and Tamale. Last Friday, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo officially opened the airport.

To cut the ribbon and commission the terminal, the two were accompanied by Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, the Minister of Transportation, and Keith Christopher Rowley, the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, who was visiting.

Speaking at the commissioning, President Akufo-Addo stated that it was a noteworthy turning point in the history of the nation and further evidence of his administration’s resolve to improve the infrastructure of the nation in order to better serve the needs of the populace and establish Ghana as a model of development and prosperity on the continent of Africa.

Prempeh I International Airport in Kumasi has been put into service, marking a significant milestone in our country’s advancement and prosperity. He remarked, “Let’s collaborate to create a future that is promising, bright, and prosperous for future generations.

The President stated that the timing of the terminal’s commissioning and the ceremonies commemorating Otumfuo’s 25th anniversary were not coincidental. It pays appropriate homage to the Ashanti kingdom’s rich cultural tradition and historical background.

In addition to honoring the traditional leadership that has played a crucial role in forming the identity and character of our country, we also commemorate the advancement and modernization of our infrastructure,” he remarked.

The conversion of Kumasi Airport into Prempeh I International Airport, according to President Akufo-Addo, “represents more than just bricks and mortar.” It personifies the creativity, excellence, and teamwork that characterize Ghanaians.
