Farmers were being celebrated for their massive efforts in providing foods for almost every Ghanaian and also for supporting the Ghanaian economy. The Assemblies also took the opportunity to appreciate the hardwork of farmers within the Assembly by rewarding the Overall Best Farmers with some items.
The items given to the Overall Best Farmer within the Accra Metropolitan Assembly sparked a lot of reactions on social media. Many argued that the Assembly [AMA] could have done better than just providing a bicycle, a sprayer and some assorted items to the Overall Best Farmer within the Assembly. They stressed that the AMA is one of the largest Assemblies [if not the largest] in the country and thus generated more funds internally reiterating that the Assembly could have done better in that regard.
Let us look at what Overall Best Farmers in other Assemblies were rewarded with.
Samuel Okyere was adjudged the 2021 Best Farmer for the Akyemansa District in the Eastern Region. He was given a tricycle (popularly known as “aboboyaa”) together with a sprayer, watering can among other items. Check below for pictures:
Reverend Joseph K. Ocloo was adjudged the 2021 Overall Best Municipal Farmer in Hohoe. Check below for the items he was presented with:
Akatsi South Municipality
Mr. Solomon Awudi was adjudged the 2021 Overall Best Farmer in the Akatsi South Municipality.
George Nana Blay Nketsiah was adjudged the 2021 Overall Best Farmer within the Sekondi-Takoradi Municipality.
People believe some of these underappreciated awards has caused many to lose interest in Agriculture and for that matter Farming. Do you believe same? Could the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) have done better than what they did? Kindly share your thoughts with us in the Comments section below.
