Out of job former workers of the defunct Tumu cotton ginnery are beaming with hope following plans by the Akufo Addo government to revitalize forgotten state factories one of which is the Tumu cotton ginnery which employed many in the past. A stakeholder’s engagement will be held soon according to the minister. A technician who used to work at the Tumu cotton ginnery.

Mr. Edward Agbenu says he’s hoping to have his job restored as the Minister for Special Development initiatives Hon. Mavis Hawa Koomson assured the ginnery would be revamped by June/July this year. Edward Abgenu said he lost his job years ago together with many others when the cotton ginnery was no longer in operational after cotton production under OLAM Ghana dipped over differences with farmers and licensing by government.

He however says it doesn’t cost much to repair and fix some worn-out and broken parts of the machines. Some parts would only need servicing when the time comes, but first farmers must be supported to cultivate the cotton, he said and added that SSCE leavers also depended on the factory as they were taken on as casual labourers where they gathered money to pursue further education and now that it’s not working they have nothing to do. His expectation is high he told David Luri of RadfordFM.
