Veep commissions sheanut factory in Buipe

John Mahama inspecting machines in the factoryThe Vice president John Mahama has commissioned a sheanut processing factory in Buipe in the Northern Region, Tuesday.

The factory is the first of three factories to be set up in the Northern Region and it's expected to provide jobs to thousands of workers.

Addressing a gathering of workers and traditional leaders in Buipe, the Vice president said the commissioning of the project is a testament of President John Mills’ commitment to improve the lives of all in the country.

“This facility will change the lives of the people of Buipe. They are not just building a factory, they are building a community. There is going to be accommodation for staff. There is going to be a club house. They are going to do a hospitality facility, there is going to be a guest house…” John Mahama said.

“…Buipe has the potential to become the industrial hub of the Northern Region just as we have Tema in Accra,” he added.

Vice President John Mahama commissions a sheanut processing factory in BuipeJoy News’ Seth Kwame Boateng who was present at the commissioning reported the vice president as saying the commissioning is a fulfillment of the manifesto promise the NDC made to the people of Buipe.

The factory has a lifespan of 30 years with an optimum capacity of 40,000 tons with an annual capacity of 12,000 tons to fetch an income of about $30 million.

The factory, Boateng stated has ready markets for its produce in Brazil.

Buipe Clashes

The Vice President also minced no words in pleading his innocence over accusations he is responsible for the Buipe chieftaincy clashes.

John Mahama said he has no interest in who becomes the chief of Buipe, insisting all he is interested in is peace in the area.

Buipe has experienced pockets of violence following a chieftaincy dispute between rival chiefs - Buipe-Wura Abdulai Jinapor and Chief Bawa Jewu Lebu II.

The Gonja Traditional Council in 2010 decided to dis-enskin Buipe Chief Abdulai Jinapor over allegations of disrespect towards the Yagbonwura, Tuntumba Bore Essa Sulemana Jakpa I with the case ending up in court.

But the High Court ruled the council can not dis-eskin the Buipe Chief.

Some have accused the Vice president of interfering in the Chieftaincy crisis in Buipe.

But in his address John Mahama insisted he has no hand in the court ruling or has any interest in who becomes the Buipe Chief.

He said if he had powers to influence decisions in court the government will not lose all the 13 high profile cases it sent to court.
