The Communications Director for Upper Denkyira West Constituency of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Agyeman Asiedu has lashed out at the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) for deceiving cocoa farmers over the mass cocoa spraying exercise in the area.
According to him, NDC has been peddling lies over its refusal to spray cocoa farmers in the Central Region.
‘NDC has been telling cocoa farmers that they have not been able to supply them with the Mass Cocoa spraying chemicals and fertilizers ‘because Nana Akufo-Addo has refused to sign the documents, even though the incompetent President Mahama has signed his part,’ he accused.
Read full statement:
STOP propaganda and work!
The attention of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Upper Denkyira West Constituency, has been drawn to malicious and evil-intended information circulated by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the constituency.
The NDC is moving round some polling stations in the Upper Denkyira West Constituency, notably, Bremang, Brofoyedur, Jameso- Nkwanta, Diaso, Asantefokrom, Aniantentem and others, telling Cocoa farmers that they have not been able to supply them with the Mass Cocoa spraying chemicals and fertilizers because Nana Akufo-Addo has refused to sign the documents, even though the incompetent President Mahama has signed his part.
We are by this Statement informing the good people of Upper Denkyira West, especially Cocoa farmers, that Nana Akufo-Addo is not a government official; neither is he the Minister for Agriculture to sign documents for the release of fertilizers or chemicals for their farms.
This kind of cheap propaganda strategy of twisting information, distorting news, and generating false allegations, is the BIGGEST insult to the good people of Upper Denkyire West. It smacks of nothing but desperation on the part of the NDC who are well aware of the wind of change blowing across the country.
The NDC also should note that Ghanaians are wide awake. They cannot play with their intelligence anymore.
Their dishonesty, deceit, lies, abuse of power and corrupt acts are all well known by the people.
President Mahama and his NDC should bring BACK the Mass Cocoa spraying, the payment of Cocoa bonuses twice a year, the fertilizer subsidy, the Cocoa hi-tech seedlings, and the other incentives which our farmers enjoyed during the NPP and President Kufuor’s time.
This is what OUR COCOA FARMERS need.
This is what Upper Denkyira West needs. This is what Ghana needs. …
