This said amount, according to the group is monies accrued from the government not releasing funds to GETFUND for over a year. In July 2014, an Accra Fast Track High Court, directed the Finance Ministry to immediately release all monies owed GETFUND to clear all debts and outstanding arrears. The court concluded that the Finance Ministry’s failure to pay statutory funds into the GETFund illegal, after a suit was filed against the Ministry at the court by Richard Nyamah, the convener of PNF. This was under the sitting of Justice LL Mensah.

The suit by Mr. Nyamah had alleged that the government had failed to make any payments into the Fund between June 2013 and July 2014. In July 2014, Mr. Nyamah threatened to seek a court order to freeze government accounts, upon failure to pay the arrears owed the FUND in full. However, six months since the court’s ruling, the group are accusing the government of not showing any commitment towards fulfilling the court’s orders.

Richard Nyamah in an interview said “Currently, government is indebted to GETFUND of an amount of not less than GH¢ 325 million. There have been no serious attempts on the part of the government to really pay off the monies.” It is obviously a breach, the ruling was specific, pay all that you are indebted to the GETFUND and ensure that you go by the law that states that within 30 days of receipt of all the VAT invoices, two and a half percent is paid to GETFUND,” he stated.
