Road contractors cry over gov’t’s failure to pay them

The country’s road contractors say government’s failure to pay them for work done is driving them out of business.

Joy News has learnt many of the contractors have abandoned their construction works because they have run out of funds.

Many of them say they are now being hounded by their creditors.

The contractors say several attempts to claim their monies from government have failed.

They complain government owes them more than three hundred million Ghana cedis and that has grounded their business activities.

“I am feeding more that 100 families within a certain community because their sons and daughters are working for me and these 100 folds are not receiving their daily bread because i am incapable of paying them due to the fact that i have not been paid, you can imagine.

“It is very bad,” one of the frustrated contractor lamented.

He said they will not blame but the system and prayed that government will expedite action in paying what is due them.
