Member of Parliament(MP) for Assin Central the Honourable Kennedy Agyapong has commended Minister of Finance Ken Ofori Atta for being ‘smart’ in delaying payment for contractors.
The NPP lawmaker is of the opinion that most of the contractors whose money is locked up with government are aligned with the opposition NDC and are likely to use their money to fund NDC’s 2020 campaign war chest.
The lawmaker said also lamented that even under the NPP, some contracts are still being given to the NDC members to execute.
“The NDC has made money and we are also giving them contract. They made money. When they steal it is paid to them outside and they don’t even bring it here. It is good we are not paying some of the contractors because the money will go to NDC and they will come and use the money to fight us. It is something I will commend Ofori Atta on”, Kennedy Agyapong said in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
