Ghana’s President Nana Akufo Addo has taken a dig at critics of his One District One Factory (1D1F) Initiative.
While delivering his State of the Nation’s Address, the incumbent President asked critics of the famed One District One Factory(1D1F) initiative to keep an eye out.
On that flagship industrial transformation policy, the President indicated that 232 projects were at various stages of implementation.
In his first address to the 8th Parliament of the 4th Republic today, Tuesday, March 9, Akufo Addo stated that his government will continue the agenda of rapid industrialisation “with the aim of transforming the structure of the Ghanaian economy from one dependent on production/export of raw materials to a value-added industrialised economy.
According to him, the Initiative has already seen 76 firms completed and operating as 1D1F companies while 112 including five medium-sized agro-processing factories and 63 common user facilities are still under construction.
“Open your eyes [and] you will see them,” he added.
