A1 Radio can confirm that this year’s National Farmers Day celebrations, which were supposed to occur on Friday, December 1, 2023, across the country, will not take place in the Upper East region on the said day.

A letter cited by A1 News, signed by the Upper East regional coordinating Chief Director Alhaji Abubari Inusah, stated that after a meeting on Friday, November 24, 2023, by the planning committee of the 39th Edition of the National Farmers Day celebration chaired by the Regional Minister Stephen Yakubu, they concluded on the need to postpone the event in the region.

According to the statement, instead of December 1, the celebration will now take place on December 8, 2023, citing recent financial challenges and the need to centralize the celebration at one location in Bolgatanga rather than having it in all the 15 districts and municipalities.

The statement said, “In view of the current financial challenges, there is a need to centralize the celebration at one location. The districts needed some time to reorganize themselves for the celebration since it was an innovation. In view of this, it has been decided to reschedule the celebration from Friday, December 1, to Friday, December 8, 2023.”

The statement also confirmed that the centralized location will be at the Jubilee Park in Bolgatanga, where all the awardees from the various districts will converge for their awards.

“Consequently, it has also been decided that the celebration would be marked at the Jubilee Park, Bolgatanga, where all the districts would converge with their awards and awarders. In view of this, MDAs are hereby requested to furnish the Regional Planning Committee with the number of persons who would be participating at the regional level for budgeting purposes.”

Speaking on A1 Radio about the issue, the Upper East regional Director of Food and Agriculture, Alhaji Zachariah Fuseini, while confirming the rescheduled day from December 1 to December 8, 2023, said it would give room for his outfit to fully prepare and provide better prizes for the award winners on the day.
