The veteran journalist, Kwesi Pratt Jnr has bumped into the Akufo Addo government again as he questions the government especially the ministry of agriculture to provide the source of data on the Agricultural sector of the economy. He said this on the popular ALHAJI AND ALHAJI program on the Pan African TV.
According to him, the Agric minister's statement that food prices have reduced and now one can get a tuber of cassava for Gh5.00 is not true. "I went to the market and bought a tuber of cassava for Gh35.00. It means they don't know what is going on in the market. Where do they get their information from? If you like go to any corner of any street in Ghana and ask of the price of kenkey, a ball of kenkey is GH2.00 or Gh2.50 with their sizes shrunk due to unavailability of enough corn"
The farmers are complaining. And now before you can farm, you need to buy the seeds and after buying these seeds, they get low yield. He also mentioned that under Akufo Addo, Ghana still imports guinea fowls from Denmark." Was it not the NPP that said Ghana is sitting on money but we still suffer hunger and poverty?"
