Clear unpaid debt owed to contractors GH 1.8 billion – GhCCI to the government

The Ghana Chamber of Construction Industry (GhCCI) has asked the government to resolve its members’ debt of GHC1.8 billion.

He wondered how the government intends to accomplish the Year of Roads agenda when its locked-up funds have not been earned by the contractors needed to execute this initiative.

How will it be possible? “Quizzed Mr. Cherry.

He, however, indicated that at the strategic leadership meeting yet to be
held, the issues of these distressed contractors will be raised for discussion.

Emmanuel Cherry, the Chamber’s CEO, made the remark in an interview with Illustration.

Once again, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo proclaimed this year as the Second Year of Roads during his inaugural ceremony on 7 January 2021.

This is to fix the country’s weak road networks.

Our roads are being built at a much faster rate than before, and, yes, I understand that there are still many more miles to be built. We described ‘The Year of Roads’ last year. As we continue with our emphasis on fixing the shortfall in our road infrastructure, this year will be the second ‘Year of Roads’. According to President Akufo-Addo, the growth of our rail sector, which is devoted to considerable resources and energy, will open up the country and contribute to the formation of a more linked society, and will also help to achieve the objective of regional and continental integration.
