Food and Agric Minister, Dr. Owusu Afriyie-Akoto

 Farmers in Ashanti Region under the planting for Food and Jobs programme are unhappy about government inability to settle them GHC4, 151,160.

The programme was launched by President Akufo Addo in 2017 to help address the declining growth of the agricultural sector of the country.

Under the programme, which was started with a seed capital of GHS560 million, about 200,000 farmers have been provided with fertilisers as well as other farming inputs.

The President in his speech at the 2018 farmers’ day held in Northern Region said government has settled debt owe farmers under the planting for Food and Jobs.

But farmers of Seed Producers Association of Ghana (SEEDPAG) Biemso Coop and Blueberry farms all in Ashanti Region have raised concerns about government inability to settle them.
