The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority has released a statement to advice the general public to resist and desist any form of extortion or cohesion by uniformed staff stationed at the Kotoka International Airport.

In this regard, the Authority has set up a taskforce to “investigate the matter” which has gone viral on various social media platforms with the caption, “beggars at the Kotoka International Airport.” The GCAA has also requested that, “the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) put measures in place to curb such practices.”

The general public is hereby advised not to give in to pleas, coercion or extortion of money by any personnel operating at the Kotoka Internation Airport and should report such conduct to the consumer complaints unit within the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority at the consumer@gcaa.com.gh or +233 (0) 302773927/ 0261700687.

According to the authority, “it will continue to ensure that passengers are not harrassed and will sanction any person or group of persons found to engage in acts at our airports that tarnish the image of our country, Ghana.”
