CPP government would revamp the fishing industry

By gna

A Government under the Convention Peoples' Party (CPP) will adopt pragmatic policies and programme to revamp the fishing industry to make it profitable to fishermen and fishmongers.

Some of the policies would be the offering of assistance in the form of micro credits to fishermen to acquire fishing trawlers to fish in deep sea.

The government would also establish cold stores and fishing harbours in some fishing communities to ensure safe landing and storage of fish to avoid post-harvest lost.

Mrs Yvonne Nduom, wife of the Convention Peoples Party Presidential Candidate, Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom said these in a message she delivered on behalf of her husband when she interacted with fishmongers and market women in Winneba.

She told the fishermen that a CPP-led government will ensure that fishermen handle pre-mix fuel themselves in order to boost their fishing activities.

Mrs Nduom said that 68 factories established by Dr Kwame Nkrumah throughout the country that had been abandoned will be revived to generate more employment for the people.

Mrs Nduom said the political lives of women will be improved and that five women will be appointed as Regional Ministers while half of Municipal and district chief executives would be women.

She said free education will be provided for children from Kindergarten to children of 19 years.

Earlier, Mrs. Nduom paid a courtesy called on the Queen mother of Kojo Bedu, a suburb of Winneba, Nana Bondzie Asiako II.

Nana Asiako 11 petitioned Mrs Nduom to ensure that education, youth employment and the fishing industry will be tackled when the CPP assumes the reigns of government.
