NPP To Place Premium On Small-Scale Industries
The flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says he will put premium on small-scale enterprises to boost industrialisation in the country when he takes over the reins of government.
Nana Akufo-Addo, who was addressing a rally at Abossey Okai in Accra, said small-scale enterprises were the backbone of the country and needed all the support of the government.
He, therefore, urged the people to vote for him to be the next president to ensure improvement in their working conditions.
He said the NPP government would find ways to make their work more productive when he assumed power as the next president of Ghana.
The large quantities of oil found in the Western Region, Nana Akufo-Addo said, was evidence that “God has prepared the way for Ghana to lead in the industrialisation of our sub-region”, adding that he would personally ensure that gains from the oil was evenly shared among all the regions in Ghana.
Nana Akufo-Addo stressed his party's determination to promote small and medium-scale enterprises, both private and individual, for the benefit of the society.
The immediate past Chairman of Abossey Okai Spare Parts Association, Mr Paa Kofi Ansong, described Nana Akufo-Addo's visit as timely.
He said the association had catalogued a number of problems facing their members for the party's consideration.
The National Chairman of NPP, Mr Peter Mac Manu, entreated all the spare parts dealers who had not registered to do so and vote massively for NPP in the December 2008 election.
