Fall armyworm still a challenge; gov’t failed farmers – Sam George

Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, has noted that the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has failed farmers and Ghanaians in general with regard to the fight against the invasion of the fall armyworms.

He said the government failed to resolve the challenges that saddled farmers in the country, a situation he believed plunged the farmers into severe economic hardship.

Speaking in an interview with TV3’s Johnnie Hughes on  New Day Tuesday August 11, the lawmaker indicated there will be no need to give incumbent Akufo-Addo a second term because in his view, he failed in his first term.

“Fall Army worm is still a challenge for framers,” he said.

“The government has failed Ghanaians and so four more years for what? He queried.

“They promised One District One Factory and one Village One Dam, what has become of these promises? The government has failed,” he added.

For his part, Kofi Ameyaw, a member of the government communications team said the government has performed creditably, for which it should be given a second term.

He mentioned what in his view are strategic interventions made by the government in ameliorating the plight of Ghanaians in the wake of the COVID-19 which include free water supply to homes, subsidized electricity tariffs and others, as some of the good things this government has done.

Apart from these, he said the government has grown almost all sectors of the Ghanaian economy in three and half years. To that end,  he said President Akufo-Addo should be given a second term in office.
