Upper East Regional Communication Team Member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Solomon TTB has urged the Minister for Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development, Dan Botwe to accept responsibility for what he described as the failure of government policies like the One-District One-Factory (1D1F), One-Village One-Dam (1V1D), Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) and many others.

He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.

The Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development Minister opening a two-day training for staff of MMDAs in the Greater Accra Region mentioned that, the government had identified agriculture as the mainstay of local economic development and that brought about initiatives such as the PFJ, 1D1F, 1V1D and many others.

But Solomon TTB, speaking on the issue opined that despite all the policies by the government, it had still failed to properly implement them.

“So that is another issue. The minister equally spoke about 1D1F and that we should praise them. He is not ashamed of himself, and he’s mentioning this. I was thinking that he would at least accept failure in good faith. The resources they decided to put in place and designed a map and started circulating it in 2016, is that what they did? A factory that has been running for like years or decades, they would just come, place a sign post there, if you don’t accept it, the next day they would send GRA officers after you,” Solomon TTB alleged.

He touted the achievements of the John Dramani Mahama administration saying it supported indigenous companies with millions of dollars.

“We gave not less than 10 million dollars to Tobinco, 6 million dollars to Ernest Chemist, then Denis (Dan Adams) equally had some. We pumped these monies to them with the intention of them building and expanding their businesses so that they can compete with other companies internationally. Thanks to God Tobinco and Ernest Chemist and the rest are now exporting drugs to neighbouring countries Benin, Nigeria and the rest,” he added.
