Govt has been pleaded to revive Kumasi jute factory

Jun '10
The government has been called upon to act resolutely for revival of the Kumasi jute industry that has caved in.

It was distressing that, the factory with mammoth potential to generate employment for a large number of unwaged youngsters in the country, had been left unattended for over years.

According to experts, all possible efforts should be employed by the government so as to revive the factory.

The factory, set up by the late President, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, was greatly discounted by the successive governments, subsequent to his expulsion in 1966.

The subsequent governments have just been showing false piety, while not taking any firm steps to bring back the factory to life.

In order to handle the towering unemployment and deteriorating economic conditions of the people, it is required of the government that it assertively works towards renewal of those factories that have collapsed.

Also, people should start developing a liking for Ghana made goods, so as to abet in development of the domestic industries.
