It’s another election year and the political tension in the country is heightening by the day as December approaches. In 62 days the country will head to the polls to elect a leader to govern the country for the next 4 years. Yesterday the ruling New Patriotic Party held their weekly Monday press conference. The conference looked at the success story of the NPP in the cocoa industry.
Since yesterday to today there has been a lot of commentary from NPP communicators in condemning the cocoa policy of the NDC government and touting theirs as the best. Today Tuesday October 6, 2020 on Citi TV’s Breakfast daily there a heated debate between 2 communicators from the 2 biggest political parties in the country.
Fred Agbenyo, the Deputy Director of International Relations represented the NDC while George Ayisi, the Communications Director of NADMO represented the NPP.
According to George Ayisi the NDC didn’t do too well to handle the cocoa industry during their tenure. He however showered praises on John Mahama for some policies he took that transformed the cocoa industry.
“Let me commend President Mahama for one very good thing he did in the cocoa policy. Every year we go for syndicated loan to buy cocoa. Then president Mahama said no, why don’t we dedicate $150 million dollars every year for cocoa roads construction. That was phenomenal. We admit that. The CEO of COCOBOD admits that. It was a fantastic thing.
He noted that this decision by the former president was a good move . He however added that the monies were never used.
Who has a better manifesto for coco farmers? Do you agree that John Mahama should be at least credited with some positives? Did the Mahama government perform abysmal like the NPP is claiming or its just for political gains? Share your thoughts!
