The Ashanti Regional Director of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA), Mr. Kwaku Fordjour Minkah, has called on Corporate Ghana to adopt farmers’ day celebration and make it more attractive.
He said corporate organizations in the country should see the agriculture sector as one of the sensitive areas of the economy where resources are needed most to meet performance target.
Mr. Fordjour told gardja.org that it will be prudent for corporate bodies, especially banks to partner MoFA towards the farmers day celebrations.
“I have observed that many corporate bodies fancy beauty pageant and entertainment programmes than investing and sponsoring agric related events like the farmers day.
This years farmers day celebrations has been ‘marred’ funding challenges, it was against this backdrop that he appealed Corporate Ghana should come in to support.
