Ms Gloria Akuffo, Minister of State at the Aviation Ministry, has expressed satisfaction at the rehabilitation at the Tamale Airport and appealed to the contractors to finish the job before the start of Ghana 2008 football tournament.
"From the layman's point of view, the facilities I saw, I think it is satisfactory and worth commending. I would be happier if everything is finished before the commencement of the Ghana 2008," she said.
Ms Akuffo said this after she had paid a day's working visit to the Northern Region to inspect construction work at the Tamale Airport.
The projects she inspected included the construction of VIP Lounge, renovation of the Arrival and Departure halls and marking of the tarmac.
Consar Construction Company and Facul Roads Limited are the contractors.
Mr. Martin Addo, site engineer for the Consar Construction Company Limited, said the first phase of the work would be completed in the first week of January 2008.
