The host of 'Ade Akye Abia' on Okay FM, Kwame Nkrumah Tikese, has taken a swipe at the minister of Agriculture Afriyie Akoto. He asked him to account to Ghanaians about the planting for food and jobs initiative and why there is a food shortage in Ghana.
According to Kwame Nkrumah Tikese, he has heard the Minister of Agriculture Afriyie Akoto saying that maize is scarce. The minister also indicated that 350,000 people will be selected, financed, and given subsidies to engage in farming to boost foodstuffs in the country.
"I want the minister to make an account to Ghanaians on the planting for food and jobs initiative, which they claim gave employment to a lot of people. How much money has been pumped into it? Nobody should play politics with this issue. I want to know what's going on. Have they consumed all the produce from the planting for food and jobs initiative?"
He said that Afriyie Akoto told Ghanaians that we have plantains in excess in Ghana. So, Where are those excess Plantains? We don't want the situation where he comes and tells us another story to take monies from the government.
He also said that we need accountability from him. We have not given the country to anyone as work and pay. We want him to account for the money that President Akufo Addo gave him for the planting for food and jobs initiative.
He added that he knows some people will send him insulting messages because of what he is saying, but he doesn't care because Ghana is not for anybody.
