- Organisers of the 6 March celebrations had wanted to buy Ghana flags from China
- They say the flags here in Ghana are expensive and mostly of low quality
- These revelations follow government's 'Made in Ghana' agenda
It has emerged that the organizers of the just ended 61st Independence anniversary celebration were planning to buy Ghana flags from China.
In fact, the chairman of the planning committee has revealed that government cannot afford the expensive Ghana flags here in the country hence the decision to buy them from China.
Speaking on Citi FM, Ken Amankwah revealed that these flags were originally being printed from China “but we couldn’t bring them down from there so we had to fall on local printers and they couldn’t meet the quantities they wanted.”
This revelation by Ken Amankwah falls in sharp contrast with government's agenda of promoting made in Ghana products.
In fact, President Akufo-Addo himself has revealed that his administration, through the 'Ghana Beyond Aid' agenda, will ensure that everything produced in Ghana is consumed by Ghanaians.
Meanwhile, the planning committee revealed that moves to buy the flags from China never materialized as the government took a new turn to have them brought here in Ghana despite the cost and quality.
