NPP coined 1D1F phrase just to win election – Carl Wilson
Sonny Carl Wilson who chaired the Confiscated Vehicles Committee under the late former President Mills administration, says the New Patriotic Party (NPP) did not mean it when it promised ‘One-District-One-Factory’ policy.
He said the party just coined the phrase to lure Ghanaians to vote for them and not that they had intentions of constructing a factory in every district.
Mr. Carl Wilson told Onua FM’s Yen Sempa host Bright Asempa that the NPP “coined that phrase just to win the election”.
“They didn’t mean to do the one-district-one-factory. Then-candidate Akufo-Addo didn’t mean the one-district-one-factory”.
He explained that moment after the inauguration of President Akufo-Addo, he visited Turkey and brought in investors to help in the one-district-one-factory policy but all the efforts have been in vain.
He however noted, “The one district one factory policy is achievable, so I proposed 50 factories to be built,”
