The state of 1D1F: 27 days to Election 2020


President Nana Akuffo Addo as part of His Campaign promise in 2016 talked about plans to industrialize Ghana’s economy, and as such promised to establish one factory in each of the districts in the country.

“We want to help the private sector to flourish, and we will help establish factories in every district to help create jobs for the people,” he said, much to the delight to the gathering, who were predominantly youth.” He stated.


However, after almost four years in office, the NPP government can boast of only 58 completed projects with some others in various stages of completion under the 1 district 1 factory, although Ghana has 260 districts so far.

Out of the 58 companies, 22 of them can be found in the Greater Accra Region, 11 in the Eastern Region, and 12 in the Ashanti Region.

The Northern, Volta, Western and Central Regions each have two factories while the Bono Region has three and the Upper West Region currently having one.



However, Member of the NPP’s Communications team Nana Akomea in October this year, acknowledged that every district in the country would not get a factory as promised by the government under its flagship ‘One district one factory’ initiative.

Speaking to Francis Abbanon the Morning Starr on Thursday 1st October 2020,  he said “I can admit to the reality that not every district will get a factory  The applications from people to get access to the program (1D 1F) is overwhelming.”

He added that “the importance of industries all of us know is the panacea. Look at the effect it will have on agriculture. Since Kwame Nkrumah, I don’t think there’s been any government apart from the current gov’t that has engaged in industrializing the country on such a sustainable basis to have a program like 1D1F.”

The Ghanaian republican constitution guarantees the freedom of thought, conscience and speech of every Ghanaian. In 2000, Ghana took great strides in securing this all important freedom by repealing the criminal libel law which had been used to incarcerate a number of journalists in the past. Some twenty years after the repeal of this law, the Ghanaian media space has seen great strides.
