The Deputy Upper West regional minister Hon. Amidu Chinnia Issahaku has charged farmers to fulfill the payment of investments received for governments planting for food and jobs, Masara N’ Arziki and other interventions to boost their sustainability for many other farmers to enjoy.
He lamented that repayment of investments received by farmers from his experience with Masara and bullock farming in the years back had also being a challenge and therefore calls for a change during a Masara field day in Bullu community in the Sissala West District.
. He used the occasion to announce the new policy introduced by government which is dubbed planting for jobs and investment that is geared towards long term investment in the area of tree plantation. The minister also advised farmers to diversify farming, by producing both animals and food crops since in the North farmers rely on one term rainfall to produce crops. For this reason he indicates that under the One million per district project, every community in the Northern part of the country will have a dam to carry out dry season farming and watering.
