In 2013, an improved variety of cowpea popularly called John Mahama beans was introduced at Atebubu Amantin in the Brong Ahafo Region.
It’s unclear the real name of the variety but it’s become so popular that more than 50 per cent of farmers in a local community called Lailai grows it now.
They have named the new variety after former president John Mahama because they claim it is highly productive just like the one it has been named after.
