“Mr President, I have contractors and businessmen in my church, they must be paid for the work they have done so they can pay tithe and offerings so that we can go to Tamale Prisons, so we can go to Tamale University and hold crusades, so that we can preach the gospel so that we can help the poor, so that we can pay the school fees of the intelligent and the people who have graduated from the Free SHS who are now hanging, queueing, waiting for money to go to the university. Mr President, please pay my contractors for me, I beg, pay them, pay them,” he lamented.
His call on the President follows revelation by the Reginald Obeng, Secretary to the Chartered Institute of Buildings (CIOB) that failure of government to pay contractors have led to death of some members.
Mr Obeng also pleaded with government to settle debts inherited from the John Mahama era.
