Veep Commission Fertilizer Factory At Asuboi
THE Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has commissioned Glofert Limited, a wholly owned Ghanaian company which is the
largest fertilizer factory in Ghana under the One District, One Factory Initiative.
The fertiliser factory is located at Kyekyewere near Asuboi along the Accra -Kumasi Highway in the Ayensuano District of the Eastern Region.
Glofert Limited, owned by a Ghanaian has an ultra modern fertilizer blending plant with the capacity to produce 2,400 metric tonnes of fertilizer per day to improve crop production and ensure food security in Ghana.
Dr. Bawumia speaking at the event urged the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Cocobod and other stakeholders to henceforth purchase fertiliser from domestic sources in order to support local businesses and save the nation valuable foreign exchange.
He explained that the 1D1F was an initiative very close to the heart of the Akufo-Addo led government and will work with the private sector as partners in order to transform the Ghanaian economy through Agriculture.
The Vice President added that the Government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will deliver on its promise to create a viable, self-sustaining economy, adding that, “One of the means by which this can be achieved is through modern industrialization and to reduce our dependencecy on the outside world through imports to produce our own food”.
