Government spent US$23,829,247.4 on rehabilitation of the Kumasi Airport runway alone, a document sighted by citifmonline.com has revealed.

The document was presented to Parliament by the Ministry of Transport and signed by the Chief Director at the Ministry, T A Selby.

President John Dramani Mahama in December 2014 inaugurated the Kumasi Airport after the runway which is about two kilometers was renovated.

There were other renovations at the airport including lighting, drains among others, but there was a different budget to fund those projects.

The rehabilitation was to raise the airport to international standard and also allow planes to take off and fly at night.

The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) accused government of bloating the amount spent on the rehabilitation work but government vehemently denied the claims at the time.

Some checks conducted by citifmonline.com revealed that Ethiopia built three new Airports with US$64 million.
