PPP flagbearer worried over low agro-processing infrastructure for BA

Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, 2016 Presidential Candidate of the Progressive People’s Party

The 2016 Presidential Candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Dr. Papa Kwasi Nduom has expressed worry over what he describes as the minimal infrastructure for Agro Processing available in the Brong-Ahafo Region.

According to him an Agriculture Region like Brong-Ahafo needs the capacity to undertake processing of its produce like Cocoa, Cashew, Yam, and Sweet potatoes to make Agriculture lucrative for farmers.

Dr. Nduom made the remarks when he addressed journalists to round off his four day campaign tour of Bono-Ahafo in Techiman.

According to the 2016 Presidential Candidate for the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwasi Nduom, the absence of Agro Processing Facilities in the Brong-Ahafo Region is a major hindrance to its development.

He said the Region’s infrastructure development is weak, resulting in inadequate investment that will help Agro-processing to thrive.

Dr. Nduom wondered why a Region were well noted for the production of Cocoa, Timber, Poultry, Cashew and Gold, is lagging behind in infrastructure development, particularly Factories.

Illustrating his point, Dr. Ndoum pointed to the poor road network linking the Sene area to the rest of Bono-Ahafo.

According to Dr. Nduom that problem has to to be solved to enhance movement and give businesses a boost.

The PPP Presidential Candidate asked the people of Brong-Ahafo to give him the mandate so that he can implement his development plans.

He also called on Ghanaian voters to give him the opportunity to create an enabling environment for Ghanaian Private invertors with more incentives and protection from foreign interests.

Dr. Nduom accused the NDC and NPP for doing politics for votes and not politics for development. With the DKM Saga so high on the minds of many in Bono-Ahafo,

Dr. Ndoum had to say something about it.

He said it is difficult to understand why such a problem could occur in the 21st century.

He blamed Government and other Regulatory Agencies’ poor performance as the reason for the whole saga.

At the Palace of the Omanhene of Techiman,
he appealed for land to establish a Group Nduom Company in the Techiman Municipality. As he did in every Constituency that he visited,

Dr. Nduom introduced the PPP Parliamentary Candidate for Techiman South, Ibrahim Sumaila to the Chiefs and People.

The Presidential Candidate of the PPP and his entourage also spent some time at the Techiman market, interacting with Traders.

The PPP Family also caused a stir with a very large crowd that marched with Dr. Ndoum through the streets of Techiman amidst Brass Band music.
