Dr. Kwaku Nkansah Writes: Akufo-Addo Is The Proprietor Of Industrialization
The first appointment made by His Excellency President Nana Akufo-Addo was Mr. John Alan Kyeremanten. The news about his appointment was flaunted with what was to be expected from him, to establish the industrialisation dream President Akufo-Addo is publicly and legitimately credited with. It's recognised that the idea of industrialisation of Ghana is one that President Nana Akufo-Addo conceived and publicly pronounced same in 2008 after detailed research by him and his manifesto committee. At the launch of the 64-paged manifesto at the National Cultural Centre, Dwabrem, in Kumasi; then candidate Nana Akufo-Addo stated among others that the nation could not continue to be a raw material economy in the 21st century. "We have to industrialise our nation and move away from being dependent on foreign finished products," thus, any attempt by any person or group to assume themselves as proponents of the industrialization concept without credit to President Nana Akufo-Addo and his team amounts to, for want of a better word, a 'dishonest infringement.'
