He assured the farmers of Government continuous support to improve their livelihood.

The DCE appealed to Ghanaian youth to involve themselves in agricultural activities especially farming.

“Let me make this passionate appeal to the youth. Don’t just come as witnesses to such events but also venture into agriculture activities, especially farming. It is one of the lucrative jobs all over the world. I’ll urge you to look that direction and you would be glad you did.”

He said the youth should see agriculture as a prestigious sector that could assist in eradicating poverty.

Present at the ceremony were Cheifs, members of staff of the assembly, Assembly Men, heads of Departments.

Presenting the items to the farmers, head of the district Agriculture department praised the MP for such ‘a great support’ adding that, this will complement his previous support of tools and a tractor donated in the past.
