GARDJA urges speedy operationalisation of cocoa fa

Why are these poor Ghanaian(especially the majority northerners) still into cocoa farming business?

Please cut all the cocoa trees, kill all of the trees and use the land to grow crops to feed yourselves.

You (the poor farmers have been enslaved enough) the solution is to stop the farming.
How many of these poor farmers benefit from the cocoa farms? The scholarships scheme to these poor one kids end up going to those in power, politician, landlords chief farmers, and opinion leaders who can afford basic needs, neglecting the poor farmer. What nonsense is these?
I quite remember a farmer upon sale of cocoa was given cutlasses, torchlights, fertilizer, some food items the landlords now has to shear with this poor farmer in the village think about all these mosquitoes!
The most painful thing the check books is in the name of the landlords.

When will some of you learn from been used as slaves for long time by the leaders,and the government? When will you be thinking being this northerners ah! it hurt my heart?

Going around the cocoa farms in the South majority northerners. My grand parents in Oti have about hectares of cocoa farms two or more different place, some grand parents is kumasi, koforidua, sunyani, etc. All farmers which started in the early 1950 to 1960, and the 1968 drought taking my grand parents farms in Oti region. Non of their kid or grand kids today had any help in in the for of scholarship in education one way or the other.

It hurt my heart when I hear all these intervention for which non, non of these poor farmers do benefit from. Some of them(farmers) devoted their lifetime doing all these useless work for someone to enjoy in power. The farmers home, they do not even have good water, no light, no mattresses to sleep on, the kids struggle with bece, waec grade above 15 end up hunting and those who end up in city's are slaves. My questions again is why has government upon all the money made from cocoa sector a poor farmer still sleep on a woven mat, pregnant cocoa farmers wife could not access health facilities, the farmers kids are not given education to continue their ancestors business even if they could not further education?

The poor farmers please just pool out from the cocoa farms, farm to feed yourselves those who can go back home let go home and start fresh is never late. What even kill me more is after they say is a blessings from God with their Bible's and Qur'an's in their office, These nonsense is enough!

Thank ancestors our eyes are getting opening.
