Separate Shea from COCOBOD - SNG

The Shea Network Ghana, a civil society organization focused on the Shea sector, has called on government to decouple the Shea sector and it value chain from the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) so as to give the sector the needed attention.

Speaking at a two-day workshop for selected journalists in Tamale, the national coordinator of the group, Zakaria Iddi said “Cocoa and shea are quite different; they need different agencies and strategies to deal with their issues. Putting shea under Ghana Cocoa Board makes the sector retrogress.”

The workshop was held to enhance the knowledge of journalists and to also help improve the sector’s development potential.
