Nabdam District Assembly invites Private Sector businesses to invest in 1-District 1-Factory Policy

As part of measures to realize government’s dream of establishing at least a factory each in all districts in the country, the Nabdam District Assembly in the Upper East Region has opened its doors for collaboration with the Private Sector in achieving this dream.
District Chief Executive for Nabdam, Agnes Anamoo said the Assembly is endowed with natural resources such as Gold, Cereals, Sheanuts, Dawadawa, Clay, Stones, Poultry and Livestock which can be harnessed for self-reliance and developmental transformation of the area.
The DCE said this on the 34th Farmers Day Celebration held at Kotintabig. The DCE who was not enthused about the absence of a strong Private Sector in the district said, it has hindered the realization of the One-District One-Factory Policy in the area.
“It is unacceptable that we continuously produce without adding value to our farm produce, rather selling them in their raw state. It is against this backdrop that we need the Private Sector as the engine of growth to partner government to fashion the industrialization of our district under the ‘One-District One-Factory’ Policy.” She stated.
Acting Nabdam District Director of Agriculture, Mahamadu Iddi said government policies such as the ‘Planting for Food and Jobs’ Programme has improved food production for consumption and export purposes.
Remarking on debt recovering under the Policy, Mr. Iddi stated that, a total of Ghc 246,551.00 owed the program, and a recovery of Ghc217, 173.00 representing 92 percent has been done.
Tenga George Kolbila from Sakote community was adjudged district best farmer. For his prize, Mr. Kolbila took home a tricycle, knapsack sprayer, 4 cutlasses, 2 pairs of Wellington boots, 2 bags of fertilizer, a radio set and a piece cloth.
