Coaltar (E/R), Oct. 22, GNA – A pawpaw
processing factory and a tiles factory are to be established in the Ayensuoanu
District under the One District One Factory policy.

Pawpaw farmers in the District are to be
supported to expand their farms to produce enough to feed the factory, while
the tile factory would use granite rocks available in the District to produce
tiles for the local market and for export.

This was disclosed by Ms Florence Govina,
Ayensuanu District Chief Executive in an interview with the Ghana News Agency
at Coaltar after an Assembly meeting.

She said a total of 422 farmers made up of 389
males and 33 females were supplied with 168 bags of seed maize and about 2,513
bags of fertilizers under the planting for food and jobs programme initiated by
the government.

Ms Govina said in addition, government was to
recruit 5,000 graduates as extension officers to help provide technical
services to farmers in the District.

She appealed to the farmers to take advantage
of the government initiatives to improve their production.

She said the Ministry of Food and Agriculture
would establish a district centre for agriculture, commerce and technology to
support the One District, One Factory Programme.
