The President of the Republic, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has charged the Chiefs and People of the Wa West district to join the fight against smuggling of government subsidised fertilizer by few miscreants and greedy criminals to enrich their pockets.
He said the money government uses to support the farmers with inputs and fertilizers are gotten from the tax payers.
The president indicated that, it is the wish of government to provide subsidy and farm inputs to farmers to increase production of food for Ghanaians and for export, adding that it is time for Ghanaians not to allow few greedy people to use what belongs to all of us to enrich their pockets adding that, all hands must be put on deck in eradicating the pilfering of fertilizer to Burkina Faso.
