The Upper East Regional Department of Food and Agriculture has stated that all is set for the celebration of the Regional Farmers’ Day. It is to be recalled that the Farmers’ Day celebration, initially scheduled for Friday, December 1, 2023, was postponed.

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.

The celebration is now expected to take place on Friday, December 8, 2023. Instead of a decentralized celebration, the Farmers’ Day Celebration is anticipated to happen in a centralized location.

When Alhaji Zakaria Fuseini, the Upper East Regional Director of the Department of Food and Agriculture, spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show, he said all necessary preparations had been completed for a smooth event tomorrow.

He mentioned that the current arrangements for the celebration are cost-effective.

“When they are brought to a centralized location, if you do the analysis, you would realize that the cost is saved.”

Addressing concerns about farmers not being adequately or appropriately awarded, Alhaji Fuseini indicated that the Department can only award farmers based on the funds they receive to celebrate the day. He continued to say that at the regional level, all attempts to seek support from other organizations and individuals have proved futile, disclosing that only two organizations, a water company that offered water, and another organization that offered the planning team Ghc500.

Meanwhile, tomorrow’s celebration will be held at the Jubilee Park, Bolgatanga.
