13-acre maize; four-acre cocoyam farms and a fishpond. At a meeting later, Mr. Mdzi pointed out that Ghanaians should take up their roles and responsibilities, to work towards effective and efficient service delivery to uplift the living conditions of the rural people.

Alhaji Hudu called on women to join forces with other stakeholders, to help educate the public on the spread of the HIV/AIDS disease.
