Operations at the airport were unaffected and flights were operating on schedule, the statement said.
Emergency teams including the fire service, police, military and civil aviation authority were sent to the scene.
“The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority has commenced initial investigation into the cause of the accident,” it added.
Local media reports said there was bad weather at the time caused by seasonal winds, which may have restricted visibility.
Photographs on social media showed the jet with damage to its nose section, while the landing gear appeared to have buckled and at least one engine sheared off.
