Contractors admonished to stop misapplying government mobilization funds


  18 Octobre      14        Société (24013),

   

Kwesitwikrom (C/R), Oct 18, GNA- Madam Sylvia Ofori -Antwi,

Managing Director of Misisupi Construction Company Limited has

cautioned building and road contractors against misusing mobilization funds

paid to them by the government for commencement of projects.

She said the refusal of the government to offer mobilization funds was as a

result of such behavior by some contractors.

Madam Ofori-Antwi expressed these sentiments when she handed over a

newly constructed three-classroom block, a store, and teachers’ common

room, financed by Ghana Education Trust Fund
(GTEFUND).

Mr Dennis Armah-Frempong, Agona East District Chief Executive (DCE)

received the keys from Madam Ofori-Antwi and handed it over to Agona

East District Directorate of Ghana Education Service (GES).

The MD of Misisupi Construction Company bemoaned the practice and

said this attitude had deterred project consultants from advising the

government in that area of work as it was prudent to allow contractors who

have won contracts to move to the site to begin works and raise certificates

of completion before payment was made to them.

In a related development, the keys to a six-unit classroom block for Agona

DuakwaMethodist Basic School built by Mbil and Son Construction

Company was handed over to Mr. Armah-Frempong.

It was also financed by GET FUND and completed within a year.

The DCE commended the contractors for the excellent work done adding

that shoddy works will never be endorsed by the Assembly.

Mr Armah-Frempong praised Professor KwesiYankah, Minister of State in

charge of Tertiary Education for the provision of infrastructure for Agona

East District.

He said more than 30 educational structures had been provided to both

Agona East and Agona West to improve quality teaching and learning in the

two districts.

Mr Armah-Frempong said, for instance, the Basic Education Certificate

Examination (BECE) results in 2016 was only 22 percent but through hard

work and provision of educational structures the district scored 44 percent

in 2017.

He said the percentage jumped to 60 percent in 2019 and was hopeful that

Agona East would chalk 100 percent in 2020.
