The flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party Nana Akufo-Addo has pledged to settle all debts owed to Ghanaian contractors within the first 100 days of his administration if the NPP wins the elections.
According to him, he will initiate a policy that will help the country’s contractors build their capacities to be able to execute large projects that have been the preserve of multinationals.
Addressing members of the Ghana Association of Road Contractors at the Ghana Institute of Engineers on Monday, the NPP presidential nominee said 90 percent of the transportation of goods and services are done by road and that goes to show that the development of “our roads is extremely important…”
He pledged to revamp the country’s railway system pointing out that it “will be a high priority to ensure that the transportation of goods and services receive some divestiture.”
