Ghana’s former president, John Dramani Mahama took to his Facebook page to congratulate and wished a good holiday to all farmers in Ghana.
He also mentioned measures that could alleviate the current economic issues in Ghana and also help the struggling cedi gain its grounds again.
Happy Farmer’s Day!
I celebrate all farmers on this auspicious occasion for their priceless efforts that feed us and keep our industries running.
With Ghana’s economy at the brink of collapse, as proven by Rating Agencies through their unending downgrades, and the hardship it has brought to many homes, this is the time for government to begin to take farmers and farming related businesses serious.
This is the surest way we can reduce imports, strengthen the struggling cedi and save Ghana’s economy.
I urge government to prioritise agribusiness and support with favourable financing for farmers and all actors in the agricultural value chain.
Happy Farmers Day. – John Dramani Mahama
