Road contractors accuse SSNIT, GRA of killing sector

The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) are allegedly dying out the road construction industry, according to the Association of Road Contractors Ghana.

John Afful Jr. is the national chairman of the Ghanaian Association of Road Contractors.

The five percent will undoubtedly be subtracted when we go to them and explain that the government owes us this sum of money before they pay us.

They should even utilize it as credit for us, but they won’t, to the point where the officers will advise you to get a loan.

According to Ahmad Nasir Yartey, public relations officer for the Ministry of Roads and Highways, the government is still making every effort to collect debts owing to contractors.

“The certainty is that the ministry distributes funds from the road fund every quarter, ensuring that payments would be made as and when we receive some releases,”

The government is dedicated to paying road contractors for the work they have completed for this nation, so we will keep working to see that they are paid.
