09/03/2021

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has taken a swipe at critics of his government particularly the main opposition, the National Democratic Congress(NDC) over the fulfilment of some of his major promises like the One District One Factory (1D1F) initiative.

According to Nana Akufo-Addo,232 projects are at various stages of implementation.

Addressing the eighth Parliament in his first state of the nation address today, March 9, President Akufo-Addo disclosed that his government will continue the agenda of rapid industrialization.

“with the aim of transforming the structure of the Ghanaian economy from one dependent on production/export of raw materials to a value-added industrialized economy” He said.

He added that the initiative has already seen 76 firms operating as 1D1F companies while 112 including five medium-sized agro-processing factories and 63 common user facilities are under construction.

“Open your eyes and you will see them” Akufo-Addo jabbed the minority Caucus whose members jeered him at the mention of the programme in his address.
