“We will not shy away from cancelling or terminating any contract which is not going very well,”
“This is a project where we have at least given at least 10 percent mobilisation to all the contractors who have started work and I believe they should start mobilizations to get enough materials and work very fast,” Dr. Nsiah Asare added.
