A couple of months back, the Minister of Roads and Highways, reported uninvolved of the introduction of the Road Fund Board, that the Ministry of Finance planned to deliver GHS 800 million to settle obligations owed street project workers specifically.

In a meeting with Citi Business news on the continuous installments, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Construction Industry, Emmanuel Cherry, approached the public authority to factor in projects that are esteemed at over a GHS 1 million as more agreements fall inside that reach.

Mr Cherry anyway communicated dissatisfaction in certain workers for hire that are not profiting themselves to be paid

“The test is a portion of the workers for hire are to be faulted for the lethargic speed of installment. You’ve weeped for installment, presently the chance has introduced itself for you to go to Fidelity Bank to sign the reimbursement proviso, to guarantee they process your installment and pay you likewise. However, as we talk now various project workers have not visited the bank to go through the required cycles to be paid. This makes it hard for the bank to impact installment.”
