Former Minister of Communications Dr. Edward Omane Boamah has revealed that Ex-President John Dramani Mahama invested heavily in pharmaceutical companies including Ernest Chemist, Tobinco purposely to create more jobs.
Speaking on Citi TV‘s “The Point of View” on Monday, he stated that the current government had failed to fulfil its major promises including they providing tax free and related incentives
to manufacturing companies.
According to him, the NPP Government promised they will provide tax free and related incentives to manufacturing and business in sectors such as Agro-processing, pharmaceuticals etc but if you tie this to what the National Democratic Congress did under former President Mahama, the NPP’s Nana Akufo-Addo led government has not fulfilled their promises or come closer to John Mahama’s records.
“Around 2014/15 Prez Mahama invested heavily in Ernest Chemist, Tobinco, Dan Adams etc and we’re not surprised about the chain of Ernest Chemist’s outlets today,I am sure by the end of the programme my brother Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah will look in the camera and tell us how many factories they’ve completed”~ Dr. Edward Omane Boamah added.
