“Speed up disbursement process”- Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers to National Board for Small Scale Industries
The Co-chairman of the Abbosey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association, Clement Boateng is calling on the National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) to speed up disbursement of the promised Gh¢600 million.
The Akufo-Addo lead administration earlier in April this year revealed that it will make available the said amount as a stimulus package for Small and Medium Scale Enterprises.
In August 2020 the Executive Director of the NBSSI Kosi Yankey-Ayeh, who is in charge of the package, said that about 102,361 applicants had benefited from the package.
Speaking to Joy news, however, Co-chairman of the Abbosey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association, Clement Boateng is calling out to the NBSSI to speed up the disbursement process in order to make the package available to the rest of their members.
“So they (NBSSI) are in the process of working out the modalities that they are going to disburse the fund. But we urge them to try as much as possible to speed up the process because our members are on our necks every now and then asking us when the money will come”, he said.
He added that the process had delayed and there was the need to see to its fulfillment.
“They promised us that by July, they will start the disbursement and finish by August, but we are now close to ending of August and they have not even started the disbursement of the small and medium scale enterprise,” he added.
