Agriculture Minister, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto

The listening public has taken to social media to react to the Agriculture Minister’s assertion that, one can get a bunch of plantains from between ¢3 to ¢5. 

Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto said at a press briefing on Thursday that food prices in the markets are at an all-time low, compared to 24 years ago when a bunch of plantains could be bought for ¢40.
