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.
