Ghana has No Food Crisis Yet ... - Gabby Otchere Darko

Solicitor, barrister and Founder of the Danquah Institute has stated that there is "no food crisis" in Ghana yet prices have gone up beyond imagination.

According to Gabby Otchere Darko, the farms in the country are giving enough produce but the prices are so high. He noted that prices have surged for some time up to about 3-4 times than the normal. An increase he said is far above that of transportation fares.

He also noted that, the current situation is further aggravated by the global food security issues and high inflation.

His statement noted "Ghana has no food crisis, enough food from our farms, yet food prices have shot up 3-4 times more in our cities, far & over above rising cost of transportation. To make matters worse, global food insecurity is worsening as inflation, from challenges with supply chain, worsens…" he said.

Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko is one of the leading transactional lawyers in the country and is Senior Partner of Africa Legal Associates, a Ghanaian law firm with a Pan-African vision. A solicitor and barrister trained in UK and Ghana, Mr Otchere-Darko is also the former CEO of a UK-based consulting company, which specialized in facilitating business for companies and organizations with interest in Africa.
