President Akufo-Addo has said an amount of GH₵1.10 billion has been allocated to the Ministry of Food and Agriculture.

Referencing an infographic, the President in a tweet noted that the allocation is part of government’s efforts to boost the agriculture sector.

Consequently, the growth to be experienced in the sector will result in the creation of more jobs for citizens, he added.

“More jobs to be created in the agriculture sector. #JobsForAll,” he stated.

Commemorating Farmers’ Day last year, the Minister for Food and Agriculture, Owusu Afriyie Akoto explained that the modules under the Planting for Food and Jobs programme are underlying strategies “to promote agribusinesses along the value chain to ensure maximum returns to job creation for the economy of Ghana.”

The modules include; the food crops module, rearing for food and jobs, the greenhouse technology module and the farm mechanization module.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Minister for Food and Agriculture, Yaw Frimpong Addo, says 1.7 million farmers have been enrolled on the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) programme.
