STOP BUYING HOUSES AT DUBAI AND INVEST IN AGRIC- CHIEF.

The Chief of Zongo community in Asharaja in the Greater Accra Region, Alhaji Yusif Tahiru, has admonished politicians in Ghana to invest in the Agriculture instead of using their monies to buy houses in Dubai and other places.
Alhaji Yusif Tahiru was of the view that the involvement of politicians and other well to do Ghanaians in the Agriculture sector will make the sector effective and attractive.
The Chief of Zongo community in Asharaja asserted that the sector is not attractive because it has been left in the hands of ordinary poor Ghanaians who are struggling for survival.
He explained that unlike the other sectors of the economy that one can identify many wealthy people, the Agriculture sector has few players who are rich and can command wealth .
This phenomenon, according to the Chief is discouraging the youth from engaging in Agriculture, especially farming; meanwhile, the sector is the backbone of the economy.
He commended the current government for it willingness to revamp the Agriculture sector and make it more lucrative and attractive to the majority of Ghanaians.
However, he charged the government to let the rural banks focus on Agriculture since they are the banks that can easily be accessed by the players in the Agriculture sector especially those in the rural areas.
“The government should give more money to the rural banks and task them to focus on Agriculture sector since these banks are predominant in the rural communities where the majority of the players in the Agriculture sector are ”, he appealed.
Commenting on this year’s ffarmers day celebration and the awardees, he said the mere fact a woman is a runner to the best farmer for 2017 sends a strong signal that the women are leaving no stone unturned in the Agriculture sector and expressed hope that more women will win awards in the years to come.
