One district, one factory agenda is possible – Agyemang-Manu
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Dormaa Central, Mr. Kwaku Agyemang-Manu, says, the party would fulfill its election promise to establish a factory in every district if elected to govern.
He told a local radio station in Dormaa Ahenkro, “Gifts FM” that it was not just an empty promise meant to deceive and win over voters.
The MP indicated that a survey and profiling of over 100 districts to assess the feasibility of the district industrialization project showed that this could be done.
The study, he said, was carried out between year 2007 and 2008, and that, it was done with strong involvement of the district agricultural offices.
He cited the establishment of the Ayensu Starch Factory and the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) under the Kufuor Administration and said these showed that the party could be trusted.
Mr. Agyemang-Manu said he found it disappointing the way the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) was implementing the free senior high school education policy, an intervention, which was at the heart of the NPP’s 2012 election campaign.
He said it was not surprising that the government was messing up with the free SHS implementation policy because it had profusely argued that it was impossible to implement that policy.
