The President reaffirmed that policy initiatives like the “One-District, One Factory” and the “Planting for Food and Jobs” programme are still being oprationalised to create more jobs for the youth.
On the former, he said thirty-six (36) factories are at various stages of being operationalized, adding that when completed, thousands of direct and indirect jobs will be created.
“The Lan Tianyi Soymilk factory, located at Asutuare, in Shai Osudoku, has been inaugurated, and is fully functional. I would urge the Ada East and West District Assemblies, as well as the Ada Traditional Council, to develop a strategic plan towards exploiting the vast potentials of the area to ensure residents benefit from their local resources,” he urged the Ada traditional rulers.
President Akufo-Addo further debunked claims that the introduction of the double track system at the SHS level will destroy the country’s education.
According to him, it will rather reduce class sizes and increase contact hours between teachers and students.
“On the contrary, this system will reduce class sizes, it will increase the contact hours between teachers and students, as well as increase the number of holidays. Every bold, new initiative that is rolled-out will, perforce, experience hitches and challenges,” he added.
