The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, launched the “Planting for Food and Jobs” programme at Goaso, in the Brong Ahafo Region.
According to President Akufo-Addo, the programme is the basis of the answer to the twin-problem of the migration of youth to city centres in search of non-existent jobs, as well as an end to the disgraceful spectacle of Ghana importing food stuffs from neighbouring countries.
Planting for Food and Jobs, the President explained, will be anchored on the pillars that will transform Ghanaian agriculture: the provision of improved seeds, the supply of fertilizers, the provision of dedicated extension services, a marketing strategy and the use of e-Agriculture.
Tomorrow, April 22nd marks Earth Day so all on-air personalities on YFM and their teams as citizens of Ghana and citizens of Mother Earth will be planting to make farming COOL because it is.
You can follow all YFM social media handles each show document their own YFM farming challenge.
