The Upper East Regional Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abdullah Salifu, has strongly criticized President Nana Akufo-Addo’s approach to the second phase of the Planting for Food and Jobs policy, which was launched a few weeks ago. 

He accused the President of lacking foresight and suggested that he is more focused on his retirement than on ensuring the policy’s benefits for Ghanaian farmers.

“It is disappointing that President Akufo-Addo seems more concerned about his retirement plans than the welfare of Ghanaian farmers,” he said. “Look if you ask him what he is going to do with this second phase of the PFJ policy, he does not know. He is going to leave it to his ministers to do whatever they want without concentrating on the needs of the farmers and that is going to be the sad reality.”

The Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) programme, initiated by the Akufo-Addo government, aims to boost food production, reduce food imports, create jobs in the agricultural sector, and improve livelihoods for farmers. The second phase of the programme is highly anticipated and seen as a crucial step in achieving these goals.

Mr. Abdallah Salifu, speaking on A1 Radio, further claimed that the President’s lack of detailed plans and concrete strategies for the program’s implementation raised questions about the government’s dedication to the agricultural sector.

He called on the government to prioritize the needs of farmers and provide them with the necessary resources and support to ensure the success of PFJ Phase 2.

Meanwhile, farmers across the country are eagerly awaiting the implementation of PFJ Phase 2 and are hopeful for tangible improvements in their livelihoods.
