Speaking in an interview with Ghanadistricts.com, the Assemblymember said the national fertilizer subsidy would help boost food production in the country and called on the government to continue the initiative since it is the potential of boosting Gross Domestic Product, increasing crop production, enhancing household welfare and reducing unemployment.
Mr. Antwi appealed to the Ministry of Food and Agriculture to put in the necessary measures at ensuring that farmers have access to the products on time and warned farmers against smuggling the fertilizer to neighboring countries.
He encouraged the youth in Adansi North to go into farming and then urged the chiefs to make lands available to the youth.
