The office of government’s flagship programme One District, One Factory (1D1F) has been robbed.
According to information given by the Public Relations Office of the Secretariat, the robbery incident occurred Wednesday dawn.
The robbers, he said, took away precious documents, laptops, desktops and television sets.
The police are currently at the crime scene conducting investigations.
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.
