Federation of Labour: Local industry key towards achievement of sustainable wealth

Tema,-The Ghana Federation of Labour (GFL) has called on the government to revive the local industries to achieve sustainable wealth towards the improvement of the local economy.

“All developed and emerging economies have used industrialization as the key driver of modernization; Ghana cannot develop based on the importation of basic goods, which can be produced locally,” Mr Abraham Koomson, Secretary-General of Ghana Federation of Labour has stated.

Mr. Koomson who was analyzing the labour front in 2021 and projection for 2022 at the Ghana News Agency Tema Regional Industrial News Hub Boardroom Dialogue platform, noted that empowering the local industry would strengthen local trade and create employment opportunities while exports of local goods would increase in relation with quality and quantity.

The GNA-Tema Industrial News Hub Boardroom platform serves as a weekly media think-tank platform for state and non-state and commercial operators to communicate to the world on topical issues of national interest.

Mr. Koomson maintained that no country had developed from ‘buying and selling’ policy because you destroy your local economy adding that “no country has ever become richer by exporting raw materials without adding value to it and also having a local industry virtually at the intensive care units”.

He however argued that Ghana could not create jobs without having a strong manufacturing base and industrialized economy, “if the government really thinks that production will transform the country, then it must revive and exploit the country’s resources to boost the local economy.

“We can survive on manufacturing industries if there is conscious effort to boost the local industry to grow,” he said.

Mr Francis Ameyibor, GNA Tema Regional Manager explained that the Industrial News Hub Boardroom Dialogue platform forms part of a broader objectives of the Agency towards revamping its operations.

Aboubakar scores again as Cameroon joined by Burkina Faso in last 16

Cameroon captain Vincent Aboubakar scored his fifth goal of the Africa Cup of Nations as his already qualified side were joined by Burkina Faso on Monday in the second round.

The Saudi Arabia-based forward, who turns 30 on Saturday, put Cameroon ahead and substitute Garry Rodrigues equalised for Cape Verde after half-time in a 1-1 draw in Yaounde.

Cyrille Bayala put Burkina Faso in front and Getaneh Kebede levelled for Ethiopia from a penalty in another 1-1 draw that sufficed to take the west Africans through.

Cameroon topped the final table with seven points, Burkina Faso edged Cape Verde on head-to-head records for second place after both accumulated four points and Ethiopia were eliminated with just one point.

While Cameroon and Burkina Faso are assured of last-16 places, Cape Verde must wait to see if they go through as one of the best four third-placed teams from the six groups.

In Yaounde, Cameroon broke the deadlock on 39 minutes in a cagey opening half dominated by the two defences.

A free-kick from the Indomitable Lions was partially cleared and Aboubakar rifled a low, left-foot shot through a crowd of players and past goalkeeper Josimar ‘Vozinha’ Dias into the corner of the net.

Cape Verde reacted to falling behind with a more adventurous approach and troubled the Cameroon rearguard several times before half-time without managing an equaliser.

The island nation introduced Rodrigues for the second half and he equalised within eight minutes through an exquisite back-heel off a low cross that beat goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Aboubakar should have put Cameroon ahead again midway through the second half but blazed over when the ball ran loose inside the box.

In Bafoussam, a city 300 kilometres (185 miles) north west of Yaounde, Burkina Faso went ahead on 25 minutes through Bayala.

After a superb long pass from the centre circle by Adama Guira, Bayala outmuscled two Ethiopian defenders and chipped the ball over advancing goalkeeper Teklemariam Shanko and into the net.

But instead of building their lead, the Burkinabe Stallions conceded on 52 minutes when Ethiopia captain Kebede levelled from a penalty awarded after a VAR review.

Burkina Faso welcomed back captain Bertrand Traore, the Aston Villa forward, after his recovery from Covid-19, but a positive test ruled out goalkeeper Herve Koffi.
