A subsidiary of Groupe Nduom, Ghana Growth Fund Limited (GGFL), has dragged government to court over debts allegedly owed it.
The company is seeking to retrieve about GHc7 million with interest from the government.
Joined to two separate lawsuits issued on July 9, 2019, are the Minister of Finance, Minister of Roads and Highways, the Attorney General.
Private companies; Agyakot Company Limited and Reggio Company Limited also featured in the suits with GGFL seeking to recover different amounts.
The company is seeking GHc4,416,719.37 purportedly owed Agyakot Company Limited and GHc 2,450, 575.18 purportedly owed Reggio Company Limited.
GGFL in the writ sighted by citinewsroom.com is demanding the sums of money as “being the total face value of the accrued but unpaid interim payment certificates” under the roads contracts.
The company is also seeking an award of “damages for breach of contract.”
