Member of Parliament (MP) for Komenda/Edina/Eguafo/Abrem Dr. Samuel Atta Mills is of the believe that the Akufo-Addo led government does not have any intention to operationalize the Komenda Sugar Factory, since it has been story after story, despite the fact that there has been a test run on the factory.

According to him, the sector Minister Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen came to parliament and told the House that there was no way a test was run on the factory, and listed thirty-five (35) reason why test could not be run.

He pointed out in an interview that when the Minister appeared before the Appointment Committee for the second term of the current government, “he admitted that there was a test run and sugar was produced”.

Again, he added that the Minister in 2019 in a question noted that Komenda Sugar Factory would start in April 2020, “we are in July of 2021 they went to the extent of parading someone to the traditional area that he was a strategic investor just for politics”.

As to whether, he would notify the Government Assurance Committee of the Assurance given by the Minister, he responded in the affirmative and lamented over the conduct of government when it keeps shifting the goal poles.

“The Minister in his response to the House said government would finalise everything by the end of August and operationalize the sugar factor by the end of this year”.
