President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured to pay contractors who have done genuine jobs under his government.

The president has observed that most contracts awarded under the previous administration were inflated and therefore to do an honest job, he has to protect the public purse as President of the republic.

According to the president, most of the arrears in the road sector have been cleared with efforts by his government to offset the rest in the course of the year, he made this known at the Flagstaff House when addressing the press.

In response to the payment of contractors who were unpaid at the elsewhere NDC administration, the former President John Dramani Mahama appealed the sitting president and also charged them to pay debts owed government contractors.

“During the 2016 campaign, the NPP promised to pay monies owed contractors within its first 100 days after taking office. Till now the contractors have still not been paid,” Mr. Mahama observed in an address to party supporters at Techiman in the Brong Ahafo region during the 5th Unity Walk by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Saturday, January 6.
