2022 National Best Farmer: I won the award through my hard work and not by my father's status

Nana Yaw Sarpong Serebour, the 2022 National Best Farmer, has denied winning the award because of the designation of his father, Daasebre Nana Otu Serebuor II.

Nana Otuo Serebour II is the Omanhene of Asante Juaben in the Ashanti region, as well as the Chairman of the Council of State under Akufo-Addo's administration.

Many people believe Nana Yaw Sarpong Serebour managed to win the National Best Father Award in 2022 because his father is involved in politics.

Nana Yaw Serebour rejected those claims during an interview with Akua Asieduwaa on Oyerepa Breakfast Time, asserting that he received the honor because of his hard work.

"Yes, Nana Otuo Serebour II is my father. People are making those claims because they might not know me. I didn't go into farming for the award; I went for the money, and the award was an added bonus that I gladly accepted.

"I am the third-youngest person to receive the award and the youngest person in the Ashanti region to receive this award for the past 38 years." He said.

He clarified that he began this process in 2014, when his father, Daasebre Nana Otuo Serebour II, wasn't the chairman of the Council of State.

"I started this award in 2014. My father was not there. I became second in 2019. You will not be presented with the award on a silver platter. I won it because of my hard work." Nana Yaw Sarpong Serebour said.
