Speaking on Accra FM, he said "The usual prize has been a three-bedroom house worth US$100,000, but we thought that it was not good enough to tie the farmer’s hand by providing him a house, and, so, it was better to give him this money so he can invest this money to his agricultural work."

 

December 1 is a day set to honour farmers of all categories for the role played to sustain the country.

The Day since time immemorial is observed as a holiday where outstanding farmers and fishermen are rewarded for their hard work by the state.
