This is according to the District Chief Executive of the Lambussie Karni District, Wikina Iddrisu Braimah who was addressing participants at a town hall meeting in Lambussie District organized by the Ministry of Information in collaboration with the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.
The DCE also reiterated government commitment to deliver on its mandate and to fulfill the promises made to Ghanaians. He thus asked participants to make good use of the opportunities presented to them to make meaningful contributions towards the development of the district.
He highlighted some of the flagship policies and programmes that the Akuffo-Addo led NPP administration has been implementing since they assumed office such as; “Planting for food and Jobs policy” was already creating employment for the youth as many farmers are already engaged by the policy. The implementation of the fertilizer subsidy program have also enticed farmers to cultivate more acres and was optimistic that the policy was going to yield desired results.
Mr Braimah, however lamented that some people, for their parochial interest have started smuggling the subsidized fertilizer into Burkina Faso to make money and has therefore vowed to deal with anyone who is caught in such an act.
He also called on all citizens to support government’s “one village one dam policy” of which plans are far advanced towards its implementation. He urged them to take full advantage when the policy is implemented so as to enable them engage in all year round farming.
The DCE furthermore, indicated that the “one District one factory policy” which is aimed at bringing industrialization to the door steps of the Ghanaian, would be implemented as government has already budgeted an amount of GHS 453 Million Ghana Cedis to that effect.
He therefore urged small scale businesses within the district to submit their proposals towards the implementation of the policy for consideration.
