Nut Processing Factory Under Construction In Northern Region

Sheanuts PixNuts For Growth (N4G), a new nuts company, is building a factory at Duuyin in the Northern Region to process nuts and grains.

The company is aiming at creating 30,000 indirect and 700 direct jobs to reduce unemployment in the Northern Region.

Situated along the Tamale/Salaga highway, the factory will process sheanuts, maize and soya beans, among others, when completed.

For this reason, the Sheanut and Soybean Suppliers Association of Tamale has expressed gratitude to the investors for their foresight and appealed to the Ministries of Gender and Social Protection and Trade and Industry to assist to ensure the success of the company.

A statement issued in Tamale yesterday and signed by Mr. Mohammed Sallam, spokesperson for the association, expressed worry that some faceless individuals, including some persons from a similar nuts company outside the Northern Region had started scheming to thwart the project.

The association made it clear that the people of the Northern Region would resist any attempt to deprive them of the great opportunity.

“Sheanut and Soyabean Suppliers Association has noticed a deliberate ploy by an organisation, which is bent on ensuring that a laudable project meant for the north never sees the light of day,” it said.

The association said more than 100 people had been engaged on the project and described the Chief Executive Officer of the N4G, Mrs Dora Harborsutei Torwiseh, as an honest woman who could propel the area’s development.

It therefore, appealed to people making deliberate attempt to ruin her reputation to stop.
