Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta says government need to be applauded for its effort to gather funds to pay contractors working on road projects.
According to him, the country’s revenue mobilization has been hapless – hence, took government long to clear its debts.
Early this month, President Nana Akufo-Addo directed the Ministry of Finance to pay contractors working on road projects.
Government since assuming office has paid over GHc4 billion to contractors – the Minister disclosed in an interview with PEACE FM’s morning show ‘kokrokoo’ Thursday morning.
