The Government on Monday introduced it had allotted roughly GH¢668 million as part-paymentof remarkable debt owed contractors running at the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) initiatives.

It stated the processes for the funds in fact started mid-October 2022 and led to November 2022 with the accounts of all contractors duly credited.

A commentary issued in Accra by means of the fund disclosed that funds had been in fulfilment of its promise made on November 8 all over a stakeholder engagement discussion board held in Accra.

It is excellent news to be informed in regards to the funds and in addition an assurance by means of the GETFund that plans are in position to settle all remarkable money owed owed to contractors in an effort to whole stalled initiatives in faculties inside the subsequent 3 years.

However, it will have to be stated that the behind schedule funds within the device isn’t the rest somebody who needs contractors and the country neatly will have to have a good time about.

The follow turns out to have grow to be the norm, which is unacceptable.

We may give an instance that during September 2009, the Association of Building and Civil Engineering Contractors of Ghana (ABCECG) accused the federal government and different contract givers of non-payments for initiatives of behind schedule funds.

When the contractors spoke, the federal government reacted by means of blaming the placement on loss of finances and unsatisfactory paintings accomplished by means of native contractors.

What was once curious on the time was once that initiatives undertaken by means of overseas contractors were absolutely paid for by means of the similar govt pleading loss of finances.
