The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Food Buffer Stock Company, Hanan Abdul-Wahab has admonished Ghanaians living  abroad to make investment in the Agric sector in Ghana their topmost priority.

He made the call when he interacted with Ghanaians living in Germany during the launch of the Germany Youth Wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The event was chaired by the National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, Henry Nana Boakye affectionately known as Nana B.

According to Mr. Hanan, the NPP government’s flagship program, planting for Food and Jobs presents enormous lucrative business opportunities capable of delivering value for investors and shared prosperity to Ghanaians.

Government, in line with its mandate to increase productivity in the agriculture sector has increased subsidization of fertilizers and improved seeds, introduced block farm programs which has made it possible for mechanisation and extension services to be spread out to cover a large acreage and a large number of farmers and the injection of more tractors and other farm machinery and equipment at subsidized prices for increased production.

“To ensure the security of farmers and investors and insulate them against losses resulting from the anticipated increases in production, the National Food Buffer Stock Company (NAFCO) has been strengthened. It is on this premise that I enjoin you to come home and invest in the new promising Agriculture sector so we can promote food security and create jobs for our people”, Mr. Hanan stated.

On his part, Nana B commended the Government, particularly NAFCO under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture for enhancing the prospects of the Agriculture sector and charged the youth to venture into agribusiness in order to take advantage of the opportunities thereof.
