Komenda Sugar Factory To Start Production By April – Akufo-Addo

The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has given his assurance to traditional leaders of Komenda that the Komenda Sugar Factory will begin production by April upon receiving a report from the contractors on site.

The Indian contractors and the technical team in charge will complete the remaining civil works by the end of March.

Consequently, all outstanding works will be completed by April for proper production to begin. President Akufo-Addo told a delegation from the Komenda Traditional Council during a courtesy call on him at the Jubilee House on Wednesday, 23 February 2022.

President Akufo-Addo said measures have been put in place to ensure that the factory will always have raw materials to function.
“I am reliably informed that negotiations are underway for a 20,000-acre sugarcane plantation at Wassa-Fiase to feed the factory, as the initial 5000 acres have been massively encroached upon with portions of same allocated for the construction of a university, and the individual farmer production from the out-growers,” Nana Akufo-Addo said.

Also, the delegation, which was led by the acting President of the council, Nana Twafohene was to brief the President of the Republic on preparations being made towards the performance of the final funeral rites of Nana Kru, Omanhene and former President of the Council. For his part, the Twafohene of the Komenda Traditional Council was full of gratitude to the President for responding rapidly to the requests they put before him when he visited the area in 2019.

Moreover, he indicated that following the requests by the late chief, the government has after completion of the new Sea Defense project also constructed a 200-capacity Landing Beach and a concrete bridge linking British Komenda and Dutch Komenda.
