Controversial musician and business mogul, Kwame A Plus has taken a swipe at President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over his interventional programs being implemented in Ghana. According to A Plus the President is a braggart, adding that promises to make Ghana a better country had not materialize.
He stressed that much of the flagship program introduced by the Akufo-Addo administration is on life support. He reckoned that the Minister for Agriculture, Dr. Afriyie Akoto has admitted famous Planting for Food and Jobs is struggling, and had to be put on 'life support'.
For Kwame A-Plus there are several others including the Free Senior High School policy, One District One Factory, One Village One Dam, and among others that are all struggling under the current circumstances. He thus dared the public to name a single intervention introduced by President Akufo-Addo that has not been affected.
In a rather mocking remark, A Plus said that former President John Mahama was right to have questioned Nana Addo's competence in steering the affairs of the country when he was in office. He noted that President Akufo-Addo has poorly managed the country.
He noted that President Akufo-Addo only bragged about his competence to get into office.
"Akufo Addo, anumdwa!! You no fit run this small country. John Mahama asked you, "have you been president before? Do you know what it takes to be president?" Sɛ wagye wani so 😂😂😂😂😂😂," a section of his post on Facebook read.
The Crisis In Planting for Food and Jobs
The Minister in a recent publication indicated that fertilizer for farmers are in short supply and thus feared that could affect the crop season this year. It was noted that the Finance Ministry's inability to process payment to contractors for supplying these inputs had been the major cause.
A Technical Advisor at the Ministry of God's and Agriculture, Mr. Asante Krobea is however optimistic the issue will be resolved soon. He assessed that the impact of this crisis could result into some food insecurity, hence a national crisis.
Learning of which, Parliament is demanding that the Minister appears before them to provide some answers to pressing matters about the fertiliser shortage and what he proposes to be done to arrest the situation.
As much as we weigh the challenges, it is worthy to note that the Planting for Food and Jobs program has largely been successful amid the challenges. In its first year of implementation, the Ministry reported having raked in a total of GH1.2 billion of crop value.
This was expected to grow steadily as the government sustains its investment and support services for the sector.
