Deputy Minister of Transport, Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover, has revealed that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) owes the Metro Mass Transit (MMT) Limited about GH¢ 1.5 million aside debts owed by some Members of Parliament (MP).
According to Hon Titus-Glover, who doubles as the MP for the Tema East constituency, debt collectors will soon be tasked to go after the people as a move to revamp the operations of the MMT.
“I can say on authority that some MPs owe the MMT and the NDC alone owes about GH¢ 1.5 million. Some of these buses were hired for their campaigns and to convey electorate to their polling stations during the 2016 elections but payments have still not been made,” he stated on Accra-based Accra FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.
Mr Titus-Glover added that “I am aware the Board has given the Managing Director the approval to engage debt collectors to retrieve the money because the company needs money to buy fuel, to pay salaries and other expenses.”
The Minister urged the debt collectors, who would be engaged, to do their best to retrieve all debts owed the company to revamp its operations.
