Akufo-Addo Says Komenda Sugar Factory to Be Commissioned by December 2022

It’s been a long road, but the Komenda Sugar Factory is finally on the verge of being commissioned.

President Akufo-Addo visited the site recently and gave assurances that the project will be completed before the end of this year.

This is great news for the local economy, as the factory will be able to produce sugar at a lower cost than imports and provide much-needed employment for locals. Keep your fingers crossed – there may still be a few bumps in the road, but on the whole, things are looking good for this local business!

Barring any hitches, the Komenda Sugar Factory will be commissioned before the end of this year.

That is the latest assurance from President Akufo-Addo on Saturday when he inspected the project in the Central Region.

Residents of Komenda have consistently complained about the loss of livelihoods due to the non-operation of the factory.

In February 2022, the President declared that the Sugar Factory will be fully operationalised in April 2022 when members of the Komenda Traditional Council called on him at the Jubilee House.

However, it has been over four months and the facility is still not yet operational.

As he toured parts of the region today, the President again assured promised again that the factory would be commissioned before the end of this year.

The factory, commissioned by former President John Mahama before the 2016 election, has been under lock and key mainly because managers of the factory say there are not enough raw materials to feed the factory.
