National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Tamale North Constituency, Alhassan Suhuyini, has described governmentâ€™s flagship programme, one district, one factory, as a â€œgrand deceptionâ€.
His comment comes after the Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen, failed to name how many factories had been established so far on the floor of Parliament on Wednesday.
Speaking on Citi TVâ€™s Breakfast Daily today [Thursday], Alhassan Suhuyini said the NPP lied in their manifesto when they said the policy document for the roll out of the programme was ready.
â€œIt is all in line with what I have called a grand deception by the New Patriotic Party â€“ seriously unpardonable grand deception. You recall that before the election, we were all made to believe the places they had already even identified and where the factories were going to be set up and what was going to be produced. For it to take the government two years to now be presenting to us the policy document, it tells you that it was all a lie.â€
