In his acceptance speech, Asamoah Amankwah expressed his appreciation for the honour bestowed on him.

He, however, urged the government to consider outsourcing the tree planting component of the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority to private people since they have shown the capacity to do a better job than has been done over the years.

The 49-year old Asamoah Amankwah with one wife and three children has been farming for 17 years.
