A member of the communication team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Upper East Region, Solomon TTB has suggested that the government is coercing existing factories to sign unto the government’s flagship One District One Factory (1D1F) programme.
Speaking on the Day Break Upper East Show, Mr. TTB explained that existing factories are forcefully co-opted unto the programme just so that the government can further its political agenda of achieving 1D1F.
“What they do is that, they would just come, ask you to change your signpost and write there, One District One Factory. If you do not accept, these people would send GRA after you.”
“These are not allegations. These are the facts,” Mr. TTB insisted.
He continued to say, “I know a certain company, Premium Foods Limited. I know that company in Ashanti region because I have direct links with the company. I have done some work with the company before. The company was already existing and had a fund from the Canadian government to establish some kind of work to maximise food production, especially food supplements to deal with stunted growth in this country. Thes people went there and launched this company as 1D1F.”
