According to Nana Siaw, the Government is doing well to develop the agricultural sector but there is proper measures for farmers, they are still facing a lot of challenges which need to be address on which include: Loans from the Bank to support their work, Tools & equipment ,No Storage facilities, No Processing Center , the importing Foodstuffs into the country and many more which is not encourage people to involved themselves in the the agric sector.
He also added that, the Ministry of Agriculture have to stop importing Foodstuffs into our country and support the famers to make our own foods attractive especially “Rice ” we can use our local rice to feed our school children but they use to reject ours and import some from outside.
Speaking to press, he urged the government to support farmers to expand our own farming product because farming is the backbone of our dear lovely Country Ghana.
He therefore urged the farmers to come together so that they can achieved their aim.
