The former Member of Parliament for La Dadekotopon, Nii Amasah Namoale, has commended President Nana Akufo-Addo for the “One District One Factory” policy since it is a good initiative.


According to the ex-MP, the policy will create jobs for the Ghanaian population and the President deserves to be encouraged to undertake the project.


Nii Namoale wished the Akufo-Addo administration well as they roll out the policy to bridge the gap between the employed and unemployed in the nation, and further enhance the country’s progress.


He however cleared the minds of Ghanaians about the stance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on the policy.


Nii Namoale stressed that no NDC member ever condemned the policy and that news about the NDC’s dislike for the initiative was all cooked up by the New Patriotic Party.


“I will never condemn neither will any NDC person condemn it. I strongly believe that no NDC person has condemned ’1 District, 1 Factory’ policy,” he noted and dared the government to name any NDC member who ever spoke ill about the policy.


“You are condemning it yourselves and saying that the NDC says we cannot do it. If you feel there’s an NDC person who said we can’t do it, mention his name.


“No NDC member has said you can’t do it,” he stressed.


President Akufo-Addo last Friday, August 25, launched his government’s flagship “One District One Factory” policy.


A statement issued by the presidency noted that the policy is “in fulfillment of a pledge by President Akufo-Addo to see the actualisation of the industrialisation of Ghana as part of the transformation process he envisages for the country.


The policy, it said “when implemented will create the environment conducive for each local government area to own factories relative to their well-endowed resources and capacity to provide jobs and wealth for the country”.


The launch included a sod-cutting to commence the construction of the Ekumfi Fruit Processing Company factory which will process pineapples for the local and international market. –peacefmonline.com
