A former captain of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan has debunked media reports that he was relocating the operational headquarters of his BabyJet Airlines to Cote d'Ivoire because he was frustrated by the bureaucracy of establishing the company in Ghana.
In a disclaimer posted on Twitter by Gyan, the management of the airlines said BabyJet Airlines still believes "in operationalising its services in Ghana, and has neither considered nor taken any decision to relocate its operational HQ outside Ghana".
The reports had claimed that Gyan was frustrated by officials in the Ghanaian aviation industry and the delay in operationalizing the airline.
However, BabyJet Airlines in a statement assured that the airline will kickstart its operations in Ghana soon.
"The Can-Do spirit that has always defined Asamoah Gyan, will ensure that together with his Management Team, the smooth operation of the BabyJet Airline with its HQ in Ghana kicks off shortly," the statement said.
