The Network of Associations of Registered NGOs(NARNGO) has called for the continuity of NPP’s flagship policy, one District, one Factory should there be a change of government in next week’s polls.

The call was made by Development Economist, Dr . George Domfeh in Accra on Thursday during an interaction with Editors.

He explained that the 1D1F is a game changer that could put Ghana back on the path of development if any new government continues it.

In the event that change happens on Monday Mahama must maintain one district one factory”, Dr. Domfeh said.

“…And lets not change the story that we’ve started writing with one district one factory”.

He expressed worry over the fact that Ghana is resourced and yet it’s underdeveloped.

According to him if Governments could manage the cocoa resources well , it can choose not to tax anybody and still make enough money to cater for the budget.

He further explained that cocoa contributes to 115 billion dollars to World’s economy but surprisingly the countries which do not produce cocoa like US, Belgium among others rather get a chunk of that money.

Dr. Domfeh therefore called for the need for the 1 D 1 F to be continued in order to make Ghana food sufficient and prevent the over importation which he said invariably results in depreciation of the cedi.

“We import more than we produce. The more we import the more we chase dollars or pounds which results in cedi depreciation”, Dr. Domfeh emphasized.

The Founder of NARNGO, Mr. Kofi Lucas on his part, appealed to the Editors to prioritize the publications on issues that promotes Ghana’s economic development adding that it is the reason “NARNGO is engaging the Editors because we believe that when you talk it’s final”.
