Factories: Bawumia’s 'NDC 2, NPP 150' claim 'barefaced lie', NDC says VP must cure 'own ignorance' on 'poor 1D1F'
Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia's claim that the Mahama administration built only two factories against the Akufo-Addo government's 150 is a lie, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said.
Dr Bawumia, during one of his campaign toirs ahead of today's (Tuesday, 23 May 2023) Kumawu by-election in the Ashanti Region, said the "NDC built only two factories but the NPP has built over 150".
The biggest opposition party, in a statement, said: "The claim by the Vice President is a barefaced lie", the NDC said in a statement signed by national communications officer Sammy Gyamfi.
"For the records", the statement added, "the erstwhile NDC/Mahama administration established strategic, high-priority state-owned factories that anchored growth in key sectors of the Ghanaian economy".
"We must hasten to point out to the Vice President that if his so-called 150 factories claim relates to government’s poorly-implemented 1D1F programme, then he needs to educate himself and cure his own ignorance about the nature of their so-called 1D1F initiative".
"This is because none of the said 1D1F factories was actually built by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government".
