More than five thousand cocoa farmers in Sefwi-Bodi in the Western Region have received 50,000 bags of free fertilizers from the government to increase their yields.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Sefwi-Bodi, Mr. Sampson Ahi, made this known during the inauguration of a new Community Information Centre at Sefwi-Bodi to enhance communications in the area.
He said they were expecting additional 20,000 fertilizers, and assured the farmers that government was committed to the cause of improving cocoa production in the coming season.
Mr. Ahi, who is also the deputy minister for Water Resources, Works and Housing, expressed his profound gratitude to the government for siting the Information Centre in the area, and charged the people to take proper care of the facility.
He commended government for initiating many development projects in the district, and expressed optimism that more of such projects would follow suit when the electorate renewed the mandate of the ruling National Democratic Congress in next year’s general elections.
Mr. Solomon Fuachie, District Chief Executive for the area, disclosed that candidates from the district who took part in last year’s Basic Education Certificate Examinations recorded 90 percent passes, and expressed the hope that the Centre would enhance the performances of students in subsequent examinations.
He commended government for initiating a number of development projects in the area, including classroom blocks, expansion of electricity to other communities, community-based health planning services (CHPS) compounds, police posts and many other social interventions.
Nana Kweku Nkuah the second, Chief of Afere, expressed his appreciation to the government for constructing the Centre, and pledged to ensure its proper maintenance for the benefit of the future generation
