The District Chief Executive (DCE) of the area, Mr. Edmund Kudjoh Atta in his address thanked the hardworking farmers and fishermen and congratulated them for their efforts in providing food for the citizenry and called on them to ready themselves for the “task ahead in feeding the nation, industry and above all, contribute significantly to the creation of employment.
The DCE said, in line with the national theme for the celebration, “Agriculture: Moving Ghana beyond Aid”, the Assembly would focus on three areas, “the human resource base, creating an enabling environment for the investor world and active participation in the market so created” in order for the District to achieve self-sufficiency.
He commended the ruling government’s initiatives in the agricultural sector which he described as unprecedented and assured that the
Assembly will replicate that to position the District among the food baskets of the country.
