Japan Motors Trading Company Ltd (JMTC) has handed over a Yamaha outboard motor, water pumps and motorcycles to the Agriculture Ministry towards the celebration of this year’s National Farmers Day.
Abdul-Somad Alhassan Musah, Assistant MD of Japan Motors was present at both the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development and the Ministry of Agriculture to hand over the donation to the National Farmers Day Organising Committee.
Handing over the donation, Abdul-Somad Alhassan Musah reiterated that the annual support towards the farmers’ day celebration was a key corporate social responsibility on the company’s calendar as a patriotic organisation.
“We deem it appropriate to support a national course especially considering how important agriculture is for economic development. This is why we have consistently donated towards the farmers’ day celebration”.
“We hope this donation in particular will spur farmers to increase their production and get the adequate raw materials to feed the factories and in the long run earn more foreign exchange for the country”.
Francis Kingsley Ato Codjoe, Deputy Fisheries Minister who received the items on behalf of the Fisheries Ministry observed the consistency with which Japan Motors comes forth with the Farmer’s Day donations which he described as a clear demonstration of a faithful partner to the Ministry and farmers in Ghana.
The Chief Director at MOFA, RP Ankobiah received the MOFA donation of Yamaha water pumps and motorcycles.
He praised Japan Motors for the gesture. “As you are aware we are in an unusual time with the Covid-19 so many activities were affected as such we didn’t inform companies on time on the celebration.
“Japan Motors with their consistency attitude still managed to come as a trusted partner. We hope this will encourage the farmers to do more for the nation”.
