In a recent address, Minister for Agriculture Hon. Bryan Acheampong celebrated a significant reduction in food prices, attributing the positive development to the effective implementation of President Akufo-Addo’s flagship initiative, the Planting for Food and Job policy. The minister highlighted the success of the program in boosting agricultural productivity and ensuring food security for the nation.
Hon. Acheampong emphasized that the government’s commitment to supporting farmers through various interventions has resulted in increased yields and a subsequent drop in food prices. This, he noted, directly benefits consumers and contributes to the overall economic well-being of the country.
As the Minister lauded the achievements of the agricultural policy, citizens welcomed the news of reduced food prices with optimism. However, some observers seek more detailed insights into the specific mechanisms and future sustainability of the Planting for Food and Job initiative, underscoring the importance of continued efforts to fortify the agricultural sector in Ghana.
