Controversial New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong is accusing the former President Mahama administration of inflating the cost of the Kotoka International Airport Terminal 3 project.
According to the MP, 278 million dollars for one airport terminal project is way outrageous and only serves to show the thievery of the Mahama administration.
He has accused the former president and his government of bloating project cost including the Pokuase interchange, Circle interchange and other projects were bloated
“The so-called Dubai interchange, how much did it cost? How much is Kasoa interchange? I spoke to one of the engineers and he said it would have cost 4 million. Look at the airport. 278 million dollars. Look at that. Mahama should tell that to the dogs. The road contract variations and all.
Today Mahama has nerves to criticize Akufo-Addo, Oh my Lord. Look and check the record of that Brazilian company, Queiroz Galvao. Go and check. They bloat the project and give the money to their girlfriends to buy houses in Dubai.
Earlier Kennedy Agyapong had this to say on the same project:
“There is no value for money for that project. You can’t tell me you spent 278 million dollars on one Terminal. How much did Heathrow cost? One terminal 278 million dollars! Why?” The MP asked.
“I deliberately went to count the hangars, just seven. 278 million, the things it can do at the airport is not what they did,” he said.
“Do you know what 278 million dollars can do? These guys are greedy,” he said in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
