Narrative Changers, a pressure group in the Upper East Region, is concerned about the large size convoy of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his working visit to the region a few days ago.

George Solomon, Chairman of Narrative Changers said of the President’s convoy: “For a country like Ghana that has just gone to the IMF, all of us needed to tighten our belts and the first person who needed to show us the way was the President. I didn’t expect the President to enter the region with more vehicles. I don’t see the benefits it has to the people.”

Mr. Solomon says he was expecting the President to come into the region with at most 10 vehicles to send a signal that he’s cutting down his expenditure.

He advanced that “if the President tells us that we should tighten our belts, we should reduce expenditure and from his angle, he’s not doing that I think is not a very honest one.”

He is not impressed with the President’s visit to the region because he was expecting the President to visit at least one of the defunct factories in the region. He observed that the President’s visit to the defunct factories would have drawn investors’ attention to the factories.

“We have a President who has an industrialization agenda. You move into a region with a lot of industries defunct, I expected that at least the President would have visited one of those industries because that was his agenda. At least visit one of those factories like the tomatoes factory, we have the meat factory in Upper East, we have the rice factory in Zuarungu, even currently we have one factory in Bongo that they can even find raw materials for. I expected that look, if this is a President who was interested in creating jobs for the good people of Upper East, his visit to those places to inspect would have drawn a lot of investors to come and take over those industries.”
