Non-performing contractors’ contracts to be terminated – President Mahama

President John Mahama

President John Dramani Mahama on Monday said government would terminate the contracts of all road contractors who failed to execute their projects at the stipulated time.

He said government was committed to constructing feeder roads to facilitate the carting of both cash and food crops to the commercial centres and would, therefore, not tolerate contractors who delayed that process.

President Mahama said this when he addressed separate rallies in the Ashanti Region as part of a four-day campaign tour of the region.

During his stay in the region, President Mahama would be addressing rallies, call on chiefs, inaugurate and inspect development projects in areas that he would be visiting.

The President said agriculture had been the backbone of the country’s economy and government would continue to support and promote activities that would enhance the growth and development of the sector to make Ghana self-sufficient and a net exporter of foodstuff.

He expressed regret that over the years, the country had to register massive post harvest losses due mainly to inaccessible roads and appealed to the people to vote for the National Democratic Congress in the December polls to continue to improve on their living standards.

President Mahama, who also visited New Edubiase, Fumso, Obuasi, Akrofuom and Adansi East constituencies, appealed to the electorate to eschew negative tendencies that could undermine the forthcoming general election next month.

He said: “Elections are not won by insults, attacks and intimidation, but through good packaging of ideas, policies and issues.”

President Mahama cautioned the electorate to follow the instructions at the voting centres to avoid damaging the ballot paper and  their subsequent rejection as had happened in previous elections.
