The chief who had promised to support the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during the 2016 election campaigns donated 400 acres of land in support of the one district one factory initiative.
He told the gathering that he had already released 5,000 acres of land for the cultivation of cassava under the Planting for Food and Jobs Programme and commended the President for awarding some roads in the area on contract.

President Akufo-Addo praised the chief for his passion for development and assured that his government would put the land to good use to benefit his subjects.
