A former Central Regional Minister Ama Benyiwa-Doe has decried what she describes as attempts by politicians to rubbish the viability of the recently commissioned Komenda Sugar Factory.

The factory, which was commissioned by President John Mahama, a few weeks ago has come under heavy public backlash over claims that it will shut down by the end of June. The main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) said the government rushed into commissioning the project to score cheap political points ahead of the 2016 elections, but government appointees have defended the decision, arguing it was timely to create jobs.

Speaking on the issue, Benyiwa-Doe, a vociferous politician, who is now a member of the Council of State said Ghanaians must look at the positives.

“I think sometimes it saddens me when I hear people from the region trying very hard to bring issues that look like the factory can never work,” the former national women’s organiser of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) told Joy FM’s Araba Koomson.

“Why don’t we all support. Even where there are problems we have to support. But I don’t see it so,” the former MP of Gomoa West noted.

She confessed that she misses her days on radio where she often clashes with her political opponents on government policies. She, however, admitted she is unable to take on her old character because as a Council of State member she needs to be decorous and be an example for the younger ones.
