An eyewitness account: Planting for Food and Jobs


Mr K Badu, I admire your unrelenting efforts to attribute everything good that Ghanaian farmers have achieved in the two years since the NPP came to power to the planting for food and jobs programme. Wish that was the case, but there is too much to suggest that in our history dating back several years our farmers were producing far more than the statistics you have quoted. There is a cyclical trend in the history of food production in Ghana which clearly illustrates periods of abundant harvest far in excess of what the population can consume and consequently exports soared and periods when production fell well below demand and imports had to be relied on. So what has happened in the last couple of years is nothing new, we have seen it all before.
