He also has over 500 pigs and still growing.

Rev. Danquah believes that with most Ghanaians venturing into agriculture, Ghana will be less dependent on imported foods to help sustain the nation’s foreign exchange earnings and reserves.

Therefore, he calls on government to provide more incentives to the youth to motivate them go into agriculture for possible increase in the country’s export products.
