GH¢1.2 billion road fund loan to settle contractors missing – NPP member alleges

A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Richard Nyamah has expressed shock in the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo led administration.

To him, the level of “Chop Chop” has become extremely worrying that something needs to be done about it.

His comment comes on the back of government’s failure to pay contractors who have delivered on their mandate and finished up various contracts given to them by the government.

Richard Nyamah was speaking on Accra-based Metro TV when he expressed his disappointment at the government of his political party.

He said, “the GH¢1.2 billion when the new road fund board took office was not there. The money that was contracted, the loan they took it they didn’t disburse it”.

When asked by the show host Randy Abbey where the money had gone, Richard Nyamah said “it can’t be found”.

Randy Abbey added “then your government must be a very useless government” then Richard Nyamah continued “that’s my problem, I’ve a problem with the government, I’m getting towards there, they must be and I’ve a problem with them that is why contractors will do what they are doing,” he said.

It could be remembered that the Ministry of Roads and Highways in 2021 released GH¢2.2 billion to pay all debts owed road contractors.
