The Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) has raised fears that factories under the1-district, 1-factory policy might collapse if government officials and Ghanaians do not consume products that would be produced by the factories.

“Our leaders are preaching the use of made-in-Ghana goods, yet we print our T-shirts outside Ghana. We design clothes, books, diaries outside.

“if we don’t build national confidence in the products we will produce from the one-district-one factory, the factories will collapse. Leaders must show leadership by eating local food at state functions. Credit cards are printed outside. Rice is grown outside Ghana and all these do not put confidence into the local economy,” Rev Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong told Accra-based Onua FM in an interview.

He further indicated that “if we are doing free education and our leaders do not send their children to the local schools but their children go to private schools and abroad, they [Ghanaians] will know our schools are not good. We must bring public confidence into what we do here”.

Touching on comments by the president, Nana Akufo-Addo for Ghanaians not to balance their religious lives with that of hard work, Rev Dr. Opuni-Fripong said: “We agree with the President because the Bible says everything has its own time.

"As Christians, we should know when to work and when to pray because if someone has employed you and you have to serve customers but you decided to go and pray instead of serving the customers, you will collapse that company and that will be a disgrace to God”.
