One-District One-Factory: Ghanaian chief wants Indian hemp factory in his district

The chief of Great Ametafor in the Shai Osudoku Traditional Area, Nene Ogah Osuagbo I has appealed to the Ghanaian government to construct an Indian Hemp Industrial Plant for them as part of the One-District One-Factory (1D1F) policy.

The chief who is in charge of external relations, diplomacy and development for the Osudoku Traditional Area, they have fertile lands for the cultivation of Indian hemp known in local parlance as Wee. Therefore, he believes a factory to help process the hemp must be established there to ease poverty.

“I want to seek permission from you to use this platform to provoke a thought; a thought which many Ghanaian knew is the obvious way to go but for fear of name-calling and populist backlash, they are unwilling to speak to it openly.”

“God in his omnipotent wisdom upon creating all things found that they were good…and declared that we use the properties of flora as food and medicine. Scientific research also alludes to many benefits that could be derived from harnessing and utilising plants for food and industrial use,” he added.

“Plants like Ghana hemp (Marijuana) also have very high medicinal or industrial uses,” he stated.

Nene Osuagbo I made these remarks during the matriculation ceremony of Dr. Nyakotey College of Holistic Medicine in Tema last Friday.

“Ghana Hemp farmers are agri-business men and women who are into job creation and poverty reduction. They are not ‘ganja’ smokers. Tobacco farmers are not cigarette smokers. Licensed importers and manufacturers of guns are not armed robbers, etc.”

“The protocol which resulted in the successful establishment of the Atomic Energy Plant and the school of Nuclear Allied Sciences of the College of Basic and Applied Science of the University of Ghana at Kwabenya are sufficient pointers to the fact that we can comfortably accommodate a Ghana Hemp Industrial Plant and a School of Hemp and Allied Integrative Medical Studies which I know the benefits far outweigh the temporarily associated health hazards,” he added.

“If we harness these essential indicators of the plants and put them out there as medicines and regulate their intake or application, we can then reap the benefits according to God’s plan,” he indicated.
