Controversial Politician and Lawmaker, Kennedy Agyapong, has intimated that one of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration’s flagship program, Planting for Food and Jobs, is useless.
The firebrand politician made this known in an interview hosted by Mamavi Aboagye on Joynews. He indicated that the authorities are always paying lip service to farming while telling the youth to go into it.
He said, “I challenge the government; what are the inputs for you to go into farming? They are just talking. I’ve been there and I’m telling you, if I go to university, I will not go into farming. Hell no!”
In a related development, the Assin Central Lawmaker also pointed out that farming in Ghana does not bring money and it is only those who pray to be poor that venture into it.
“When you wake up in the morning and you pray that God let me be poor, then you go into farming,” he told Joy News.
He explained that whenever he hears people who are supposed to do something better for their lives say they are going into farming, he just laughs.
