Its been three years since former sports minister Isaac Asiamah embarked on the construction of ten multipurpose youth centers across the various regions. The project which is to help in the development of sports in the country was expected to be completed in nine months. But that has not been the case.
Current sports Minister Mustapha Ussif recently revealed that every debt owed the contractors to see to the completion of the facilities have been cleared. However, contractor for the WA project Ngoswyni Benjamin says the over 20 percent work left to complete the project is at a standstill because they have not received any money to finish the project.
“We have been looking for money if not we would have finished this job long time ago”.
“We raised certificates since last year and still they are not paying so they themselves they told us in a meeting they will raise money and pay us so we finish and hand over” he told Starr Sports.
“Now they can’t tell us anything because they have refused to release monies to us to finish up the work so we are just suffering”. Contractor Ngoswyni Benjmain added.
