Don't compare your 1D1F to Nkrumah; his factories did not produce, toffee, kose, chalk- Blakk Rasta

The controversial Ghanaian Reggae Legend, Blakk Rasta has taken a swipe at Vice President Dr Bawumia on his comments regarding industrialization in Ghana.

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has reportedly tauted the Akufo-Addo led NPP government's industrialization drive as unmatched since the country's first President Kwame Nkrumah exited the political scene of Ghana some 55 yeras ago.

However, speaking on Xylophone Fm on Monday, the outspoken Political Activist, Blakk Rasta said no comparison should be made between industrialization under President Nkrumah and the "One District, One Factory"policy under the current regime.

According to the vociferous radio show host, Factories built by Dr Kwame Nkrumah were internationally reputable factories that produced high value commodities and should not in any way be compared to what is happening today.

"Nkrumah's factories were not factories that producce kulikuli. They were not factories that produced chalk. They were not factories that produced ice kenkey and toffe. They were factories of international repute. Glass making and tomato factories; dye factories; corned beef and milk factories", he said.
