A member of the communication team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), claims the fact that Roland Agambire’s rLG has been given more business opportunities in the country than any other Ghanaian entrepreneur confirms suspicions that President Mahama and the NDC have shares in the company.
Richard Asante Yeboah believes the huge monies invested in the SADA Azongtaba Guinea Fowl Project by government should have been given to the farmers who are already in the same business in the Northern Region to expand their businesses rather than to an individual which cannot employ more hands in the Northern Region.
Speaking on Okay FMs “Ghana Decides” program, he indicated that the government has invested Ghc15m in Azontaba Cottage Industry which Roland Agambire of rLG is part, to form a subsidiary company called SADA Azontaba Guinea Fowl Production and Marketing Company.
The NPP communicator stated that this act by government will not help in alleviating the poverty level in the Northern Region since many of the Guinea Fowl farmers are left out of this investment. He stressed that the Ghc15m could have opened up 10 more companies for the people in the Northern Region and alternatively the government could have invested in 160,000 farmers who are already in the guinea fowl business.
“...are we investing in one single individual or we are investing in the whole Northern people?” he asked.
“I am tempted to believe that President Mahama and NDC have shares in rLG”; in that it is strange for the NDC government to invest $100 million dollars in rLG to distribute laptops in the country while there are other Ghanaian companies who can also assist in the supply of the laptops," he said.
Raising suspicion about the deal, he accused government of a calculated attempt to invest the nation’s money in one particular company and cited government's involvement in the Hope City Project which will cost $10billion dollars.
To him, government does not understand clearly the problems facing Ghanaians since soft loans could have been given out of the Ghc15m to the farmers to expand their businesses.
