She said this the encroachment would make it difficult for any immediate extension to be done.

Madam Dapaah used the occasion to meet with two chiefs, Nana Kwame Korang and Nana Kwesi Yeboah of the Odumase Traditional Council that leased the land for the Airport, to discuss the issue of encroachment on the airport lands.

She also met with the Nsoatre Traditional Council which released lands for the extension of the airport but yet to be utilised.
