Ghana’s Minister for Food and Agriculture, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto has said Ghana has been the only country in the West Africa sub-region providing food sources to its neighboring countries during the COVID-19 pandemic era. 

He made this remarks on the floor of Parliament when he appeared before the House to brief it on this year’s farmers’ day celebration which ended on Friday, November 6, 2020 at Techiman in the Bono East Region.

He said, in line with this year's celebration, a whole week had been deducted and scheduled with various activities that would help improve the farmers’ knowledge on modern ways of farming and also how to maximize their revenue.

 In an interview with the Minister for Food and Agriculture, he explained that, the farmers’ day cerebration was pushed forward to November instead of its usual first week in December due to the General election scheduled for December 7, 2020.

 Dr.  Akoto was in Parliament to make a statement on event and how the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government appreciate and celebrate Ghanaian farmers on its 36th anniversary celebration.

He used the opportunity to invite the Speaker Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye and Members of Parliament to grace the occasion.
