A controversial debate pop up yesterday after the overall best farmer in the Accra Municipal was awarded a bicycle.
The overall best farmer in Accra was invited by the Municipal Chief Executive to receive his award, in a trending video. You would be surprised the kind of present he was given. They awarded him a bicycle, knapsack sprayer and a diploma.
This became the trend of the day. Most Ghanaian expected that the best farmer in Accra could be awarded a better equipment. It could be an automobile, harvester, tractor and many other tool that can aid in his farming.
The Ghana National Farmer’s day ceremony was designed to celebrate and honor dedicated and hardworking farmers. A lot of us might not be alive if there’re no farmers to cultivate food for us to consume.
Farmers, fishermen and others who contribute to the primary sector must be treated well. These people go through all means to make sure there’s something for Ghanaians to consume.
It’s quite unfortunate the best farmer of the year in Accra wasn’t given some complex farm tool to motivate his work. We hope the sector takes the trolls of the citizen into consideration and do the needful next time.
