Cashflow may have affected Dr. Akoto’s tenure as Agric Minister – Upper East Campaign Coordinator suggests

“The implementation was done, but I think the manner in which it was done … he [former Agric Minister] expected the flow of cash. The timing was also another factor, and this is headed by the president.”

Adams Alhassan, the Upper East Regional Campaign Coordinator of Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, said this of the former Minister of Food and Agriculture’s inability to implement a good number of initiatives targeted at expanding and formalising while increasing the profitability of the sector for farmers. 

He spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on the Day Upper East Show today about Dr. Akoto’s lecture on the future of Ghana’s economy. 

The former minister’s attempt to redefine the industry may have been in some ways stifled, according to Mr. Alhassan’s comment. Mr. Alhassan asserted that despite the difficulties, the current government had outperformed its predecessors.

“Yourself, you would understand that last year, we had challenges with agricultural inputs. We had challenges with the farming inputs. But when he [Dr. Akoto] leads [the country] as the one in control, he would be directly involved. That is not to say that the government of Nana Addo hasn’t performed well in the agricultural sector. If you look at our 6 years, the Nana Akufo Addo government has done better than the other governments.”

Mr. Alhassan insisted that all commendations should go to Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto for the tremendous show of commitment to enhancing agriculture in the country.
