According to him, the MP is against the 1D1F initiative of President Akufo Addo whose main focus is to industrialise the rural economy to better living conditions of people. The project, which is being executed by the Natural Rubber Business (NARUBIZ) company Ltd. is expected to be completed within six (6) months by Nazak Construction Ltd. At the sod-cutting ceremony, the DCE identified rubber plantation as the fourth export cash crop in the District hence, government will support such farmers to thrive to boost the local economy. Mr. Arthur said apart from the Free SHS programme, the 1D1F initiative was the next in terms of major projects earmarked by the NPP government to better the living conditions of Ghanaians.
