A Deputy Minister of Transport, Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover, has revealed that the Metro Mass Transit (MMT) has resolved to contract debt collectors to go after the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and some MPs who owe the company a total of GHS1.5 million.
Mr Titus-Glover, who is also the MP for Tema East explained that the NDC hired the buses for their 2016 election campaigns but never paid for the service.
He urged the debtor-MPs and the NDC to set a good example by paying for the MMT services they enjoyed so as to enable the state transport company to clean its books of those debts.
Mr Titus-Glover told Ghana Yensom on Accra100.5FM hosted by Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don) on Wednesday, 19 June 2019 that the board of the MMT has given the company’s managing director the nod to engage debt collectors to retrieve the money owed by the NDC and the MPs.
“They [NDC, MPs] should go and pay the debts, GHS1.5 million,” Mr Titus-Glover urged, adding: “I’m aware that the board has given the managing director the approval to engage debt collectors to retrieve the money and, so, they should go to the MPs and the NDC to retrieve the money.
“The company needs money to buy fuel, they need money to pay salaries and other expenses.”
He urged the debt collectors who will be engaged to do their best to retrieve all the debts owed the company.
