Nana Yaa Jantuah, the General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), has slammed the government for failing to deliver on its promise of one district, one factory to create jobs for the youth.
She stated on Pan African TV’s Alhaji and Alhaji on Saturday, December 18, which was observed that, due to the government’s inability to keep its promise, it has resolved to rename anything it sees as one district, one factory.
She went on to say that the government will soon identify lottery kiosks as one of these enterprises.
“ These are the same people who in 2016 the same Dr, Professor Bawumia the economic professor came around and said that it’s a lazy man’s way of mobilizing revenue if you do it through taxes, you have to do it through production. What is happening now, where is the production, I district, one factory where is it?. The youth are unemployed, the youth are unemployed,” Nana Yaa Jantuah
“Right now what happens with the one district, one factory is that when they find out that there is a factory some where they give you incentives and they labeled it one district, one factory, very soon we will find lotto kiosk becoming one district, one factory because anything they can lay their hands on, they turn it into a one district one factory,” she added.
Nana Yaa Jantuah made the remark when speaking about the government’s performance in the previous fiscal year.
According to her, the Akufo-Addo government is just concerned with making slogans, not with the lives of Ghanaians who gave them the power they now enjoy.
