Parliament to probe debt owed cocoa roads contractors

The Speaker says he has received several petitions from both cocoa road contractors and contractors of the Roads and Highways Ministry regarding the government’s delay in disbursing their arrears.

The Concerned Cocoa Road Contractors Association of Ghana has expressed agitation over the government’s delayed payment of debts owed to them for work done on various roads across the country.

He proposed establishing a committee to probe the matter and urged greater collaboration among both caucuses in the House.
I have received many petitions from contractors regarding non-payment of their labour, a lot of arrears from both COCOBOD and Roads and Highways. In fact, I propose setting up a high-powered committee to investigate that matter because it is very important.”
