“I can revive Komenda sugar factory” – John Dumelo begs Nana Addo to give him the chance
We are all aware that the Komenda sugar factory is Idle and rusting away. The old factory, built-in 1964, became defunct about 30 years ago due to technical difficulties and mismanagement.
If it begins operations again today, about 7,300 jobs are expected to be created.
Actor, astute businessman and Ghanaian politician John Dumelo has confidently stated that he can revive the Komenda Sugar Factory if given the chance by the Akufo led NPP government.
In a tweet John Dunelo authored on the bird app, he stated in a self-assured manner that if he’s given the green light today by authorities, the factory will start producing sugar in a matter of 16 months.
I can revive the Komenda sugar factory if given the mandate. That factory will start producing sugar within 16 months( considering planting and harvesting of sugarcane). The factory needs about 200,000 tons of sugarcane(pa) to operate at full capacity. We can do it!
It can be recalled that on May 30, 2016, the factory restored the hope of unemployed youth who dreamt of finally gaining employment.
Former President John Mahama at the commissioning stated that “the income generated by young people would be phenomenal and be able to change their lives”.
