Constitute Road Fund Board Now - Chamber Of Construction Industry To Akufo Addo
The Ghana Chamber of the Construction Industry has asked President Akufo Addo to immediately constitute the Road Fund Board to also ensure the payment of the contractors. According to the Chamber, the delay in the formation of the Board six months into the year is also having a toll on road projects across the country. Some
road contractors on Monday, June 21, 2021, besieged the premises of the Ministry of Roads and the Highways to demand payments for executed projects. The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Construction Industry, Emmanuel Cherry, explained that the formation of the Road Fund Board must be done immediately too. There is no way certain businesses can be transacted
without recourse to the Road Fund Board. So we are appealing to the president, through the Council of State, to make sure as quickly as possible to constitute and inaugurate the Board for the Board to come and do the needful because as we speak now, nothing happening. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Roads and Highways has submitted the names of the persons for the Board to the presidency, awaiting approval.
