The Presidential Candidate of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Mr. Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, has pledged massive transformation of the nation’s agriculture, if voted power.
He said more resources would be put into the sector to substantially increase productive levels and returns to the farmer.
Addressing party supporters during an election campaign in Donkorkrom, he said his government would turn the Afram Plains into the nation’s food basket.
It would provide the irrigation facilities, support farmers with equipment and expose them to new technologies to boost food crop production.
Mr. Greenstreet told the people that it would do everything to fulfil any election promise made.
He noted that Ghana had been blessed with enormous natural resources and that what had been missing was strong and good leadership to efficiently manage these resources to improve the living conditions of the population.
“I promise you that CPP will make good use of these resources to make Ghana a better place.”
The nation, he said, would see massive economic development under his watch and asked the people to trust him and his party with their votes.
He used the occasion to introduce the party’s parliamentary candidate for the area, Mr. Michael Ampontia, to the gathering.
