The Auditor-General’s Report discloses that two airport authorities owe Ghana Meteo a total of $10 million. – www.myinfo.com.gh


According to the 2022 audit of public accounts of ministries, departments, and agencies, two authorities within the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) owe the Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet) a sum of US$10 million. This amount pertains to airport passenger tax, landing, and en-route charges accumulated between October 2019 and June 2021, as reported by graphic.com.gh.

The Ghana Meteorological Agency Act, 2019 (Act 1002), as amended, specifies that the agency’s fees and charges should include 10% of all landing charges and 10% of overflight charges collected by the GCAA, as well as 5% of airport tax collected by an aerodrome operation. However, the examination revealed that these requirements were not adhered to.

The audit report indicated that records from the examination showed outstanding debts totaling US$10,044,380 owed to GMet by both the GCAA and Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) during the mentioned period.

In light of these findings, the Auditor General’s recommendation urges the chief director to ensure that the acting director takes prompt action to recover the owed amount without delay.
