Square Pegs in Round Holes: Appoint Dr Abu Sakara Foster as Your Agric Minister - President told

President Nana Akuffo Addo and his New Patriotic Party promised to industrialise Ghana in the run up to the 2016 elections presidential and parliamentary elections. They have come under the microscope after most of their projects like the One Village One Dam did meet the expectations of Ghanaians.

Johnny Hughes of TV3 has claimed that, if President Nana Akuffo Addo wants to be remembered like Dr Kwame Nkrumah then he ( President Akufo-Addo) should appoint Dr Abu Sakara Foster as his Food and Agriculture Minister. He made this claim on TV3's Newday today, Tuesday, 21st September, 2021.

He believes that the Former Convention People's Party Flagbearer is capable of turning the country's agricultural sector into a viable industry. He said, " the kind of Agriculture Minister our president should appoint is Dr Abu Sakara Foster. We need ministers like him. He has the expertise to change the fortunes of planting for Food and Jobs. Be bold and appoint people like that and stop the "where were you politics".

The outspoken journalist aslo believes that, there are too many square pegs in round holes. " We have mastered the art of putting square pegs in round holes. Planting for food and jobs is a good initiative. However, you can not build a block and tell us it a storage facility. How can you regulate the temperature of the facility?

Dr Kwame Nkrumah did not adopt existing factories, he built them from scratch. Alan Kyeremantin has been our longest serving Trade and Industry Minister, yet we can not process our agricultural produce".

Dr Abu Sakara Foster was born 15th August, 1958. He hails from Damango and with vast experience in Agriculture and Economics.

Today marks Dr Kwame Nkrumah's 112th birthday. Considerable number of his factories have been abandoned by successive military and civilian governments.
