“Mahama and his government have nothing to offer to Ghanaians and so he (Mahama) now believes that Nana Addo can fulfill his promises especially the factory promise.
I am telling you today that, before the polls, Mahama will come out and testify that Nana Addo can indeed deliver”, Chairman Wontumi told Okay FM in Accra Thursday.
Chairman Wontumi as he is affectionately called was reacting to comment by the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia that the one factory in every district promise by Nana Akufo Addo is “feasible”.
According to Asiedu Nketia, the one factory in every district is possible, but the concept lacks clarity. “Is Nana Akufo-Addo going to create the environment for individuals to open the factories or the state is now going to do business. I’m confused because I know the NPP is capitalist oriented” he stressed.
Failure to do so, the NDC scribe said, it will be one of his many utopian promises by Nana Akufo-Addo to the electorates ahead of a crucial election.
With at least four months to the 2016 general elections, Nana Akufo-Addo on the campaign trail promised to build one factory in each of the 216 districts.
He vowed to make industrialization the cornerstone of his policy of economic transformation.
Though his promise has been described by the ruling government as not feasible, Chairman Wontumi believes the NDC’s scribe’s confidence that the promise is feasible means the NDC believes President Mahama and his NDC government have nothing good to offer Ghanaians
