Former President John Dramani Mahama on Monday, May 22 addressed a session at the 52nd Annual Meetings of the African Development Bank held in Ahmedadab, India.
Speaking on the theme: ‘Agriculture is Cool: Engaging Africa’s Youth’, Former President Mahama made a case for governments on the continent to transform the sector to attract the youth.
He said his father was one of the early farmers to go into large-scale production in Ghana but he, like many others, would not have succeeded without support from governments.
“There is a huge potential in agriculture both for providing food and providing jobs,” he said.
