Minority Leader, Osei-Kyei-Mensah Bonsu
Ghana?s cocoa production has dropped from a record 1 million tonnes to 820,000 tonnes.
Minority Leader in Parliament, Osei-Kyei-Mensah Bonsu, who revealed this at Pankrono last Friday, said the country?s cocoa sector had been mismanaged, adding that the country failed woefully to sustain the 1 million tonnes production.
According to him, the sharp decline in cocoa production indicates the level of mismanagement of the sector by government.
Additionally, he bemoaned the increase in the importation of maize under the present administration.
The Suame MP appealed to the electorate to vote massively for the opposition NPP to take the necessary steps in the agric sector.
He urged the electorate to shun falsehood being peddled by the government appointees.
He said such unpleasant situation should be a wake-up call for all Ghanaians to vote out the current NDC administration.
The Suame lawmaker said he was not surprised about the seeming collapse of the NHIS programme introduced by the NPP, saying ?even they kicked against it in parliament when we brought the idea so if they collapse it now you should not be surprised.?
The Minority Leader said government had intentionally neglected all developmental projects started in the Ashanti region by the previous administration and implored the people of Ashanti region, particularly Kumasi to vote for the NPP.
