Commissioning a multi million kente musoleum at Bonwire, Nana Bobie believed the government should set up manufacturing company to produce the yarns as well as stiching materials use in making the weaving locally, which lamenting on that would go a long way to create jobs for the teeming unemployed youth in the country.
He said such is the reason why his outfit as traditional leader is embarking on such projects, hence the commissioning of the musoleum.
Nana Bobie observed that, kente clothing fetch a lot of money, bring in foreign exchange including tourism.
