Nana Owusu Ameyaw II, the Chief of Nsuta, has commended the Government of Ghana for being development-oriented and focusing on the provision of requisite socio-economic infrastructure for the well-being of Ghanaians and general progress of the country.

He stated that since the inception of the Akufo-Addo government, there had been provision of infrastructural development projects to augment the existing ones in sectors like health, education and agriculture nationwide, saying Nsuta and its surrounding communities had not been left out.

Nana Ameyaw II gave the commendation in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Wednesday at Nsuta in the Techiman South Municipality of Bono East Region.

He cited the rehabilitation of the Nsuta-Nkrankrom road under the cocoa roads project, the construction of Nsuta local market and an ultra-modern building for the Nsuta Health Centre.

Nana Ameyaw II however, stated that though the Government had done enough for the growth of the agriculture sector, cocoa farmers in the area needed fertilizers, spraying machines and other farm inputs to enable them to increase the quantity and quality of cocoa produced in the area.

He said since cocoa was a major export cash crop that generated foreign currency to support national development, the Government must devote proper attention to local cocoa farmers who were not members of any cooperative society and give them adequate support to expand their farms for higher productivity to meet national and international demands of the commodity.

Nana Ameyaw II commended the Seed Production Division and the Cocoa Health and Extension Division of the Ghana Cocoa Board for the free supply of more than 30,000 cocoa seedlings to farmers in the area.

“That’s a good step to encourage the people, especially the youth to take cocoa farming as a serious and lucrative business for income generation,” Nana Ameyaw II said.
