Hon. Eric Opoku speaking in an interview with Kwabena Obeng Akrofi on Ark in the morning Friday ahead of the 2016 Farmers Day Celebration at Kintampo said Brong Ahafo contributes over 30% of Ghana’s food requirement.
The 2016 edition of the Farmers Day Celebration was on the theme: ” Agriculture; A business response to economic growth.”
He said government has put proper mechanisms in place to boost the productivity of agriculture in the country.
Hon. Eric Opoku was deeply skeptical on how political opponents do not appreciate efforts being put up by the John Mahama led government to make agri-business attractive.
He stated that the NDC government will not pay heed to their critics—but will remain focus and help change more lives.
The Brong Ahafo Regional Minister added that making agriculture attractive will be an avenue of creating more job opportunities for Ghanaian youth.
