Why is Akufo-Addo promoting John Mahama's brother's Dzata cement? Paul Adom asks on Metro TV

Why is President Akufo-Addo promoting a product which belongs to Ibrahim Mahama, the brother of his oponent, John Dramani Mahama and the immediate former President of Ghana?

Obviously, this is an important question and Paul Adom Otchere of Metro TV attempts to provide a plausible explanation on the Good evening Ghana show.

Dzata cement enters the Ghanaian market as the only wholly Ghanaian owned cement product. So far, the feedback from Ghanaians have been positive across the political divide.

Contrary to the usual politicisation of issues of development and national interest, members of both NDC and NPP have been promoting the Dzata cement product on the various social media platforms. Interestingly, the former Senior Minister, Mr Yaw Osafo Mafo and the Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Alan Kojo Kyeremanteng have visited the factory.

To some Ghanaians, including Mr Paul Adom Otchere, this is an admission that President Akufo-Addo is promoting the Dzata cement which belongs to his main opponent during the past three general elections. But why will President Akufo-Addo promote a business belonging to John Mahama's brother?

In the views of Mr Paul Adom Otchere, the president is promoting Dzata cement because it is online with his vision of industrialization through the one district, one factory initiative. The host of Good evening Ghana show said in the past, some businesses linked to political opponents were targeted and collapsed. This he is argued is condemnable and should remain in the past.
