The Deputy Director of Africa Imagination Network (Ainet), Mr. Abubakari Saani has indicated that the Visit of Agric Minister, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto is a good thing but cannot Reduce prices of food items in the market.

He issued the statement in an interview with Upperwestmedia team on 5th of December 2022.

“…I can’t say his visit isn’t necessary, the Waala people are into farming so his visit is a good thing, so if we are previlaged to have the Agric Minister it’s a good thing and we will be hoping to have more of such..”

He noted that Price of food has shot up grievously referring to the fact that the planting for food and Jobs Program Spearheaded by the Akufo-Addo Led government couldn’t provide food security.

“I don’t think his visit might be able to reduce prices of goods and services, I don’t think that is possible, taking a cue from planting for food and jobs, when food items were sent to Kumasi, it didn’t change price Dynamics there”.

The Agric Minister was in Wa and toured some radio stations on the 5th of December 2022.

Meanwhile the Minister for Interior, Lawyer Ambrose Dery has cautioned farmers and trader to Desist transporting food out of the country.
