The Presidential candidate of the Independent Peoples' Party, Kofi Akpaloo has accused the main opposition NPP of plagiarizing his idea when it promised to establish one factory in every district.

According to him, the plan is not original to the NPP, as his party had already mentioned that it will build 250 districts nationwide if elected.

Nana Akufo-Addo during his tour of the Central Region had indicated that as part of plans to industrialise and transform the Ghanaian economy, his government plans to help establish a factory in each of the 216 districts across the country if he comes to power.

According to him, the setting up of these factories across the country will, not only, commence the rapid industrialization of Ghana’s economy, but also, will result in the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs needed by the masses of unemployed Ghanaian youth.

But speaking at the SGL Inter-Political Party Forum in Accra Wednesday, the IPP flagbearer said: “From 2007 to 11 June, 2016 he [Akufo-Addo] has not mentioned anything about one factory, one district. When we launched this on the 14 June then he started talking about 1-district,1-factory.”

“[They] looked at the ‘nationwide’ and he turned it to one-district one factory...so he stole that idea from me” Mr. Akpaloo said.

He argued that the NPP’s version of his idea “will not work because you don’t just build factories. You have to look at so many factors.”

Kofi Akpaloo since 2010 has been eyeing the presidency. He has, however, been unable to finalise the process to enable him contest in the presidential race.
