Factories: Bawumia’s claim is a barefaced lie – NDC
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said a claim by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumai that “NDC built only two factories but the NPP has built over 150 factories” is a lie.
Dr Bawumia made the claim in Kumawu over the weekend while campaigning for the NPP candidate in the by-election.
But the NDC in response said, “The claim by the Vice President is a barefaced lie. For the records, the erstwhile NDC/Mahama administration established strategic, high priority State-owned factories that anchored growth in key sectors of the Ghanaian economy.”
In a statement signed by the party’s Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi added that “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 program, 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.”
