Armed robbers attack 1-district 1-factory secretariat

The National Secretariat of the 1-District 1-Factory has been robbed Wednesday dawn, has learnt.

This was confirmed by the Public Relations Officer of the Program, Abraham Gyasi.

According to him, the robbery occurred around 1 am this dawn. Police have since taken over the facility while investigations commence into the incident.

So far, some of the items stolen recorded include laptops, printers, desktop computers, scanners among others.

One District One Factory Programme was instituted by His Excellency, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo to address the challenge of slow economic growth at the district level through a massive nationwide industrialization drive, which will equip and empower communities to utilize their local resources in manufacturing products that are in high demand both locally and internationally.

This, he said will allow the country to reap the rewards of industrialization.

The programme is expected to facilitate the creation of between 7,000 to 15,000 jobs per district and between 1.5 million and 3.2 million nationwide by end of 2021.
