As part of the implementation of the One District One Factory policy, the Assembly member for Abiri-Adens3 in the Kwabre-East district, Hon. Francis Agyapong has suggested and pleading with the President Nana Akufo-Addo to consider an establishment of a Kente factory in the district.
Hon. Agyapong noted that the people in Kwabre-East district are fond of Kente weaving, so the president can consider it as a matter of fact in establishing a Kente factory than investing in other business in the district, as part of their policies that accounted for their trounce victory in the 2016 polls.
During the 2016 electioneering, the Nana Addo led New Patriotic Party (N.P.P) Promised to implement huge policies when voted into power, which One District One Factory was a part.
The implementation of the One District One Factory policy is aimed at reducing the high unemployment rate in the country especially on the part of the youth.
While people consider this policy as an excellent decision of saving the swollen economy as it was described by the President, others too consider it as a political feasible.
According to the assembly member, the act of Kente weaving has caused people to migrate from their communities to settle at the district to engage in the Kente business.
“I see it as a good ground for promoting Kente business in the district”. He said.
