A Presidential aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen has said that the Bono East region has benefited from 10 factories under the government’s One-District-One-Factory (1D1F) initiative.
According to the former Trade and Industry Minister, government has so far constructed 296 factories under the programme across the country which are all operational.
Mr Kyerematen said this when he interacted with the Techiman Traditional Council at a meeting to officially declare his intention to contest for the NPP’s flagbearership race and asked the chiefs to support and pray for him.
He said with the support and blessing from the chiefs and queens in the area, he would win the presidential primaries and lead the NPP to victory in the next general elections.
Mr Kyerematen said if he is endorsed, “the NPP could win the general elections with a wider margin to avert any election dispute. Under my government, Ghanaians would see a remarkable improvement in their socio-economic livelihoods.”
He called on the chiefs and queens to inspire the youth in the area to engage in entrepreneurial ventures, saying the government cannot employ or absorb the majority of Ghanaians into the formal sector.
The government could create employment for only 700,000 people and asked the young people in the area to “take advantage of the Business Advisory Center and acquire employable skills to fetch themselves decent jobs.”
The Akwamuhene of the Techiman Traditional Area and the Acting President for the Techiman Traditional Council, Nana Owusu Gyare II, assured him of the council’s support and urged all the NPP aspirants and politicians, in general, to remain decorous in their campaigns.
The chief said a decorous political campaign devoid of personality attacks, insults and inflammatory statements would greatly help preserve the nation’s prevailing peace and consolidate the gains of the country’s fledgling democracy.
