We will bring back the fishing industry’s glory days – Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama has assured the fishing communities that if he is elected to be president again, his administration will restore the fishing business to its glory.

Mr Mahama accused the Akufo-Addo administration of destroying the fishing business.

He said prices of premix and outboard motors during the tenure of the NDC were handled by the chief fisherman but currently it is handled by apparatchiks of the governing party.

“We will restore the glory days of the fishing industry,” he said during an interaction with canoe owners and fisherfolks in Tema on Saturday, June 8.

He added “we have to provide vessels for the Navy to be able to patrol our waters.

“We will provide the Navy with ships so that they can patrol and make sure that the exclusive zone where the trawlers are not supposed to come, they don’t come there.

“We are going to employ young people who live in all the fishing communities along the beach and we will pay them to clean the beaches every day so that there will be no plastics on  our beaches.”
