Akufo-Addo showcases his government’s achievements

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is in the Central Region to showcase the steady progress the country is making with his signature One District One Factory (1D1F) Initiative, to create job opportunities and wealth for the people.

The 1D1F has been a key plank in the government’s agenda to industrialize the economy, to end the West African country’s over reliance on donor support for development.

Visits to the regions has been a centerpiece of the governance system under the watch of President Akufo-Addo.

He has been touring the regions every year to engage with the people, to learn at first hand their pressing needs and concerns and to tell them what the government has been doing to make things better.

As part of his tour of the Central Region, he would be inaugurating two factories – the Central Oil Mills at Assin-Jukwa and a Lubricant Factory at the Gomoa Akotsi Fetteh Junction.

These businesses have been established under the 1D1F initiative.

President Nana Akufo-Addo would also inspect engineering laboratories and workshops built by the government at the Cape Coast Technical University and engage with the chiefs of the Oguaa Traditional Council, in the Cape Coast Metropolis.

Tackling the poor road infrastructure, something that has not been unhelpful to business development – a disincentive, has been made a top development agenda of the government.

The President would therefore perform separate ceremonies to signal the start of construction works on some roads running through the Central Region, to shorten the travel time, make the roads safe, provide the people access to the health facilities and help to ferry goods, especially farm produce, to the marketing centres.

Among these roads are the Assin-Praso – Assin Fosu road in the Assin Central Constituency and the Assin-Nyankomase – Ahenkro – Assin-Jakai cocoa road and the Heman-Lower-Denkyira – Heman-Nsutema cocoa road. President Akufo-Addo would also be inaugurating some completed projects in Winneba.

These include a community centre, a health facility, a library and museum of the Efutu culture during the official inspection visit to the region.
