STOP BIAS GOVERNANCE, USE RIGHT PEOPLE FOR AGRIC MINISTRY- ANGRY FARMER JAB
Disappointed by the incessant failure of various governments to make farming attractive, the traditional priests and a farmer, Nana Abebrese Abbas has heavily descended on the subsequent governments; NDC, NPP for being bias when it comes to Agriculture and farmers welfare in the country.
According to the furious farmer Nana Abbas, he’s very much disappointed in the way these aforementioned governments host farmers when they come into power. He tells the Asona Dehyie Kwarteng that, failure to properly manage farmers in the country is attributed to the fact that wrong people are appointed to manage the agricultural ministry which is very funny and a joke.
“How do you just appoint someone who has no knowledge in agriculture to head the agricultural ministry as a minister? Do you just do it because he attained his degree in the western world, does that give him the knowledge to manage agric? He angrily quizzed.
Expressing further disappointment, Nana Abbas indicated that being an agric minister does not call for someone who only put on nice suits and ties without having any innovative knowledge about farming.
He suggests that industrious and knowledgeable farmers who have been declared best farmers in the various regions should be brought up to form the agric ministry.
Nana Abbas appealed to the government to facilitate the granting of loans to them for the expansion of their farms.
A lot more needed to be done. Lack of funds is a major drawback on increased production because farmers lacked the resources with which to expand their farms.
Call for more on.
