The Member of Parliament for Mfantseman Ekow Kwansa Hayford admits that NPP government hasn’t not yet established factory under 1D1F concept in the constituency but they won’t be pushed by the opposition party NDC to rush into establishing unsustainable factory. According to the MP, Mfantseman does not want a repeat of Komenda Sugar Factory which was established under Former President John Dramani Mahama led administration and has not produced a cup of sugar for the people Ghana. Government is determining to revive Saltpond Ceramics which has collapsed for several years. Ekow Kwansa Hayford said Saltpond Ceramics will be revived this year. The challenge facing the revival of the factory is non-availability of power. Government is working hard to transport gas from Takoradi to Tema which will be used to feed the factory. They will also construct kenkey market for the kenkey sellers at Yamoransa and gari factory to supply gari to schools in the Central Region.
The Dean of Central Region Coordinating Directors Avona Mohammed also pledged on behalf of the coordinators to work to achieve the objectives of the performance contract. He is calling for deeper collaboration and resources to to enable them to achieve the desired target.
