The Majority in Parliament has announced that the government has paid contractors over GH¢6 billion within the past two months.

This statement comes in response to the Minority Caucus’s claim that the government borrowed GH¢7 billion from the Treasury Bill market to pay contractors.

Despite the Chamber of Construction Industry denying this claim, the Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, confirmed on the floor of Parliament that the payments to contractors were made, resulting in the resumption of stalled road projects.

“In the last two months, the government has paid contractors in excess of GH¢6 billion. I repeat, GH¢6 billion. These monies, Mr. Speaker, paid contractors have enabled them to get back to the roads. We know what is happening in our constituencies. We know that contractors are back on site. Roadworks are ongoing.”
