Gabby Otchere-Darko the cousin of Ghana’s President Nana Akufo Addo has said that the current President of the country is way above Dr. Kwame Nkrumah as far as building factories is concerned.
He says Nana Addo in just 5 years has built more factories than Dr. Kwame Nkrumah who was President for 9 years.
“Akufo-Addo has also embarked on an industrialization drive like never before. Yes, we always refer to the 1st Republic as the “golden age”. Nkrumah built 32 factories in 9 years, which became but a drain on the exchequer due to misalignment and mismanagement.
The truth is, far more have been built or fixed in 4 years under 1D1F under Akufo-Addo. More global automobile companies have set base in Ghana under Akufo-Addo than under any other Govt in our 64 years. There is more to come as AFCFTA takes shape and Ghana is at the centre of it.”
Your government is working, but there is a lot more to be done to address mass poverty and mass unemployment, and they admit to it and will do more, and we must push them to do more, but we must do so with our memory and expectations in sync,” he added.
Meanwhile, President Nana Addo has begged Europe to cancel Africa’s debt of which coronavirus contributed to.
