Denying Private Sector Support Cripples Ghanaian Economy


Ghanaian economy will remain stranded unless the government provides the needed support to the private sector who employs the majority of the Ghanaian populace.

Asuma Ibrahim, a seasoned leather works entrepreneur in the Bono east region said this during an interview with Nkyeremu news team on the Ghanaian economy.

Asuma Ibrahim who graduated as road side shoeshine boy entered into big time production with two boys in 2012. He has now 8 active workers who produce an average of 150 pairs of foot wears daily.

Asuma Ibrahim, says their major challenge facing the private sector is their working equipment.

He explained further that, ministry of trade and other top government officials had visited his workshop at Techiman Manprusi Line on several occasions but none fulfilled his promised.

Asuma Ibrahim was however thankful to the
Pum Netherlands Experts Group for providing him funds for his few equipments

He says, their products are patronised throughout the country and beyond. Neighbouring countries like Niger, Burkina Faso, Cote D’ Ivoire and Togo mostly make orders for their products.

He says, he needs advanced equipments to increase their supply chain. Asuma Ibrahim says, expansion of his factory will create more job opportunities for Ghanaians.

The managing director of Asuma Leather works is calling on the government to support them with funds and pay back in due time.
