Hon. Boye Laryea, the Municipal Chief Executive of Okaikwei North Municipality says the Assembly is set to organize Farmers’ Seminar to bring together all farmers in the municipality.

Hon. Laryea made the disclosure during a tour of farms of past award winners in the municipality to commemorate the 39th Farmers Day celebration in Accra on Friday.
This afforded the MCE to have firsthand information of the challenges of the past best farmers in the municipality and to access the impact of their awards years on.
He stated it is high time, Ghana took a critical look at the nature of the National Framers’ Day Celebration by channeling the resources for the national celebration to farmers in the hard to reach farming areas.
