The Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP), John Kumah, has revealed that the nineteen factories under the One District-One Factory (1D-1F) initiative have been completed.
He stated that the 19th factory has just been commissioned at Asutsuare in the Shai Osuduku District of the Greater Accra Region.
“We have 19 completed and commissioned factories under the 1D-1F. I, John Kumah, was present during the commissioning of the 19th factory at Asutsuare and I have photos and videos to show you”, he told Citi TV.
The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the 2016 elections had promised to build a factory each in the 217 districts across the country.
As part of the Akufo-Addo-led administration’s efforts at reducing unemployment in the country, the programme was implemented.
But the main opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the government of failing to fulfil that campaign promise.
