170,000 jobs created under One-District, One Factory – Bawumia Campaign Team

Dennis Miracles Aboagye reports that since its launch in 2017, the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia administration’s flagship One District, One Factory (1D1F) plan has generated 169,870 direct and indirect jobs.

On Sunday, June 30, 2024, Miracles Aboagye gave a speech for the campaign team’s The Next Chapter series. She said that the initiative has reduced the nation’s unemployment rate by creating about 170,000 jobs, both directly and indirectly.

“This government’s 1D1F initiative, since its commencement, has created 25,318 direct jobs. The indirect jobs created amount to 144,552, and they combine to give us 169,870, between 2017 and 2024,” he stated.

The director of communications for the Bawumia Campaign Team described what he dubbed the “scoreboard” between the opposition National Democratic Congress and the ruling New Patriotic Party, saying that the NDC’s industrialization record has lagged behind the NPP’s.

“Between 2009 and 2016, the NDC could only manage to put up 5 factories. These 5 factories could only create 558 direct and indirect jobs. This is a complete failure on the part of the then NDC government,” he said.

The NPP, since 2017, has been able to commence 321 factories, though not all of them have been completed.

“The Nana Addo/Bawumia administration, between 2017 and 2024, has completed 169 factories under the 1D1F scheme. 152 more factories are under construction and will soon come onstream. In total, 321 factories were started, and the jobs created amount to 169,870,” Dennis Miracles Aboagye postulated.

He mentioned that the NDC’s 5 factories created 220 direct jobs, whereas 338 people were employed indirectly. He, therefore, called on Ghanaians to retain the NPP in power to continue with the industrialization drive it has begun.

“This is one of the justifications for Ghanaians to vote for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to continue with this massive industrialization program to produce more for the local market and export some for foreign exchange. We can also employ additional hands with the expansion of the 1D1F program. If the NDC comes to power, these factories under construction would be stalled, whereas those fully operational would be allowed to collapse,” Miracles Aboagye emphasized.
