Omanhene of Edina Traditional Area, Nana Kwadwo Kondua VI has commended President Nana Akufo-Addo for showcasing made-in-Ghana clothes.

He called on Ghanaians to put their political affiliations aside and rally behind President Nana Addo to achieve his aim to implement the "one district, one factory" policy to enable him address the unemployment situation in the country.

He stated that "Ghana is not for President Nana Akufo-Addo" so there is the need for Ghanaians to come together and support him to take the nation to the highest level.

The Omanhene made this call at the launch of the 2017 Edina Bakatue festival which aims at promoting consumption of local products as catalyst for industrialization and job creation.

The event was under the theme "Buy Made in Ghana Goods, use Made in Ghana Products, Support Ghanaian Industries and Create Employment for the Youth".

He however expressed worry over the attitude of some Ghanaians including government officials who condemn local products and rather embrace foreign products.

Nana urged Ghanaians to cherish made-in-Ghana goods to strengthen the economy and generate more revenues for the nation.

He observed that the country has numerous industries producing many goods for local consumption and appealed to government to help local industries.

"No matter what actions we take, we as citizens must acknowledge and cherish what we own as Ghanaians. What do we sell to the outside world as a country?” Nana Kondua questioned.

The Assistant Director of the Central Regional Coordinating Council (CRCC), Mr.David Allan Paintsil in a speech read on behalf of the Central Regional Minister, Mr. Kwamena Duncan advised that consumers should not be discouraged from consuming made-in-Ghana products and urged Ghanaians to stop mocking users of local goods.

This, he explained, is the only way the country can build a strong economy needed to address unemployment in the country.

The Central Regional Minister outlined his vision for the Region, stating that he wants to address education, sanitation, employment issues and further called on the residents to help him improve the Region.
