“We built this factory ten years ago, we’ve installed new equipment, actually there are even new ones that are currently under installation and these cost us $10 million but we got here and the whole factory with everything inside has been demolished by the government,” he made known in an interview with GhanaWeb.
Currently, many Ghanaians have lost their jobs because of the action taken by government under the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in a bid to build an ultramodern Trade Fair Centre.
The new facility, when done, is likely to house foreigners than Ghanaian business men.
