1 district 1 factory a political gimmick – Volta NDC

The NDC is criticizing the NPP government over it’s failure to distribute fairly the national cake. It’s alleged the government has sidelined the Volta region in the 1D1F program.

A key component of the NPP’s 2016 manifesto according to the NDC According to the NDC that bought the party votes in some areas of the Volta region is the promise of jobs through its flagship industrialization policy that will enable the factories established in every district. The party is lamenting it’s yet to see any industry constructed in its region.

“We recall, H.E Nana Akufo-Addo at the launch of the 1D1F at Ekumfi, when he made it clear that there could be no prosperity for the people if we continue to maintain economic structures that are dependent on production and export of raw materials.”

“This statement speaks to the peculiar situation of the Volta region where raw material production abounds with little or no value addition”
