An outspoken contractor from Malaita province has raised concern over delay of the National Transport Fund (NTF) under the Ministry of Infrastructure Development.
Mr Philp Iro said authorities need to clarify the delay of the NTF.
“The delay has now taken three to four months and is still yet to be settled, unlike few years ago it took them only one month to settle the payment. This matter has stirred our working recruits to compress us for their payment and also it has halted us to continue our road works in the province for this year.
“Hence we need the responsible authority to seriously consider our call and speed up the process of this delayed payment.”
Iro is one of the road contractor working in Malaita province.
