The Progressive People’s Party, PPP, has said that a PPP government will establish a gold refinery and a nursing training school at Prestea in the Prestea Huni-Valley district of the Western Region.
The gold refinery according to the PPP, “will end the long tradition of exporting all our gold in its raw state without adding value to create jobs for our people and to increase revenues from it.”
Speaking at the campaign launch of the PPP’s parliamentary candidate for the Prestea Huni-Valley constituency, Edmund Duku, the presidential nominee of the PPP, Dr. Papa Kwesi Ndoum, remarked that “Prestea has, and is still the old city I have known all this while. Anytime I come here, the situation is the same.”
“Bad roads and poor drinking water, meanwhile, the town has been exporting several thousands of gold. Can’t we establish a gold refinery at Prestea to take care of the gold mined in this enclave such that, people from Dubai and all that, will also travel to Ghana to buy refined gold rather than shipping everything in its raw state to other countries? A PPP government will establish a gold refinery here to create jobs for the people”.
On his part, the PPP parliamentary candidate, Edmund Duku, revealed that, the PPP also has plans to build up a Nursing Training Institute at Prestea.
Mr. Duku, who is in the banking industry at Prestea, urged residents to “vote for the PPP because, we have plans to put up a nursing training school here in Prestea. That will give opportunity to many of our youth particularly females the opportunity to enter into nursing. It’s about time we provide one here to serve the mining areas”.
He challenged the electorate to test the PPPs ideas of liberating the Ghanaian economy through job creation.
