We have always been galvanizing support for the local industry. We are being urged to consume locally produced goods. We have been addicted to importation for so long and it's hurting our economy. As much as we are craving support for the local industry, it should not be biased. That support should be evenly distributed. It shouldn't be skewed towards a particular individual or people within a particular political class. But what we are seeing today concerning government contracts is saying the exact opposite. If we want the local industry to thrive we must support them.
Sir David Adjaye is a world-renowned Ghanaian architect based in the United Kingdom who has been the brain behind some amazing edifices all over the world. I am expecting that if government contracts must be awarded, local architects should be left out. But under the current government, all huge government contracts are being awarded to Sir David Adjaye and that can not be a coincidence.
Honorary vice president of Imani Africa Bright Simmons has been doing some analysis of the awarding of contracts to David Adjaye. He said that by the time he is done with all the projects awarded to him, David Adjaye would been paid 300 million dollars which to Bright Simmons is monstrous and inflationary. Watch his analysis below.
