The 2012 flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom says President John Mahama’s commitment to promote ‘Made in Ghana’ products campaign is dubitable.

He said the government has not cre­ated the enabling environment to encourage local manufacturers to be competitive locally and globally.

He added that government has paid lip service to the Made in Ghana campaign.

 Dr. Nduom said,  “this administration would have put in the edict that nobody, no organisation funded by the tax payer should go and purchase anything imported if that product can be produced in Ghana;

“If President John Mahama were to do that in one of his broadcasts, that will mean that parliament can’t go and import it can be produced in Ghana.”

“He must make sure that whoever it is that we are giving money to from the tax payers money does the right thing”, he said.

His comment followed a move by parliament to purchase furnitures from China and Italy for the newly completed Job 600 office building.
