Okudzeto Ablakwa exposed again over NPP’s ‘One District, One Factory’ claim

Sam Okudzeto Ablakwa

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s mission to dissect the manifesto promises of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has hit a jolt again.

On Monday, the former Deputy Information Minister led a presentation by the NDC which sought to expose what the NDC described as “unfulfilled manifesto promises by the NPP”.

However, since the presentation on Monday, Ablakwa has come under serious pressure to substantiate his claims, as many of the NDC’s claims have been subjected to strict proof by the media.

Following the NDC’s presentation, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah exposed over 255 non-existent promises which he said Ablakwa and the NDC had concocted to make the NPP appear dishonest.

The Information Minister’s accusation appeared to have been proven on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen on Tuesday when host of the popular show, Osei Bonsu drew Mr. Ablakwa’s attention to some of the claims.

On Tuesday evening, the opposition lawmaker was on Metro TV’s ‘Good Evening Ghana’ show to elaborate on his presser and claims against the NPP.

He credited the NPP with only nine factories under the 1D1F policy. However, show host, Paul Adom Otchere, pointed out to him that assuming the NPP has even established nine factories, it is still an amazing record in three years – a record only the government of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, can surpass.

Ironic Claim

As Okudzeto Ablakwa and Paul Adom Otchere continued the banter, the North Tongu MP made an ironic claim which surprised viewers.

The NDC MP sought to accuse the founding tradition of the NPP of ending Kwame Nkrumah’s industrialization drive, but viewers’ comments were quick to remind Okudzeto of how his party, the NDC and its root, the PNDC, combined to rip apart Ghanaian industries.

One viewer on Facebook commented that Okudzeto’s PND(C) collapsed a total of 192 state companies between 1989 and 1999, citing the Divestiture Implementation Committee  as his source. 

More Factories Under 1D1F

Meanwhile, Dailymailgh.com’s checks indicate that the list of factories created by the NPP Government in the past three years under the 1D1F is far in excess of nine across the country. 

About 28 new companies built under the 1D1F are currently operating while 31 more are under construction across the country. Apart from this, the 1D1F initiative has also partnered to revive or expand 48 existing companies, which are now operating under 1D1F.

Also under the 1D1F, the NPP government has also partnered the AFdb for over 60 small scale processing factories , which are under construction nationwide.
