1D1F: Akufo-Addo may not be able to implement project - U.S Ambassador

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo may not be able to fulfill his electoral promise of building one factory in each district of the country according to US Ambassador to Ghana Robert Jackson.

“President Akufo-Addo’s vision of one district-one factory may not be realised in his first term or even his second, if there is one, but the idea is exactly what is needed to get beyond aid – that you have to industrialise, that you build your industrial base, that you create jobs so that people do not want to trek across the desert and be potentially enslaved in Libya or even if they make it to Libya, drown in the Mediterranean”, Mr Jackson said on 21 Minutes.

As far as President Akufo-Addo’s Ghana Beyond Aid aim is concerned, Mr Jackson said: “We need to make Ghana attractive for young people to stay here and see that they can be entrepreneurs, that they can have a real bright future here”.
