Former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Bernard Allotey Jacobs says President Akufo-Addo’s One-District-One-Factory (1D1F) has won his support.
Allotey Jacobs indicated that even though the 1D1F policy is an initiative of his rivalry New Patriotic Party (NPP), he now believed that it was in the interest of the Ghanaians and for that matter worth supporting.
“We took the 1D1F for a joke but we have realized that it can employ the whole community. The surprising thing is that the fishers are also planting pineapples for the Ekumfi factory,” Bernard Allotey Jacobs exclusively told Reynold Agyemang on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
Allotey Jacobs added that people in the Central Region who have had the opportunity to work in the factory should do everything possible in their little efforts to keep the factory running since it is translating money into many’s pockets.
He however appealed to entrepreneurs and investors to support the NPP Government initiative by about 20 more factories in the Central Region for the benefit of the locals.
