A wholly-owned private Ghanaian company was commissioned here on Thursday, with an 800,000- metric -ton fertilizer production capacity at Asuboi, around 78 km north of the capital.

When commissioning the plant, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia expressed delight at the successful collaboration between the government and the private sector, adding that one of the pathways to achieve the Ghana Beyond Aid vision is through agricultural transformation.
