A former Lecturer with Wa Polytechic now Dr. Hilla Limann Technical University has advocated for the prioritization of Cocoa farming in Upper West Region.
Explaining the Issue to Upperwestmedia Team, he stated that a cocoa tree he saw in Nandom survived and was bearing fruits.
“The first time I saw a cocoa tree was in 1970, in a garden in St. Francis Xavier Minor Seminary, Wa. I wonder if that tree is still there, or whether others were planted there. I’m also aware of cocoa trees in other parts of Wa, and even in Zemuopare in the Nandom Municipality.
I hope people will be encouraged to plant more of such economic trees, and in commercial quantities.”
