Revealed: How Top NPP Sugar Importers Forced Akufo-Addo To Neglect Komenda Sugar Factory



For fear of losing their jobs and income, top party financiers within the NPP who are into sugar importation felt threatened by the operations of the Komenda Sugar Factory which was established to cut down Ghana’s importation of sugar.

This according to Mr Alexander Akuoku, the NDC’s parliamentary candidate for Ngleshie-Bortianor Constituency in the Greater Accra Region in the 2020 parliamentary elections, forced these to men in the NPP to heckle President Akufo-Addo to ensure the factory does not begin its operation.

Mr Akuoku made the allegation while speaking as a panellist on Accra100.5FM’s morning show, Ghana Yensom, hosted by Kwame Appiah Kubi.

Mr Akuoko said: “The factory was revamped to revive the local production of sugar to reduce the importation of the commodity into the country but the NPP administration, led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, deliberately failed to operationalise it for their people who deal in sugar importation so they will have a field day”.

Ghana imports about $300 million worth of sugar every year.

Mr Akuoko said: “As an accountant by profession, I know the big men who are behind the importation of sugar into the country”, adding: “They are aware their operations will come to halt if the factory is made fully operational in the country”. 

“In view of this, the NPP financiers have been battling the operations of the laudable company from behind the scenes”, he said
