Chiefs in Awutu in Central Region have requested from National Democratic Congress (NDC), 2024 presidential candidate, John Mahama to establish ten factories in the area in connection to the 24-hour economy policy proposal in the area.
“We plead with you, that once you come into office, you should immediately establish 10 factories in Awutu. Because this 24-hour economy will help us. We will do it.”, Abokuade Agyeman Tettey Otabil III, President of the Awutu Traditional Council appealed
Adding: “The youth don’t have jobs to do. We will all put our hands to it and make it.”
The president also revealed the Traditional Council’s endorsement of John Mahama’s proposed 24-hour economy, expressing their commitment to support industrial development in the area.
“… And so we must immediately prepare for that to happen, and this perfectly fits into the 24-hour economy.
In response, John Mahama assured the Traditional Council of his commitment to regional development. He outlined plans for creating an industrial hub on the Western corridor, emphasizing the need to decentralize industrial development.
“It will be a deliberate policy of ours to bring industrial development to the Western part because we cannot make all the factories be concentrated in one place,” Mahama said.
