Several metric tonnes of maize are going waste in Maame-Krobo in the
Afram Plains South District of the Eastern Region due to inadequate
Maame Krobo is known for the large production of maize, however, Maize
farmers in the farming community are struggling to get buyers for tonnes
of maize harvested this year.
According to the farmers, whereas government approved farm gate price
for a 50kg sack of maize is Ghc60, few traders who buy from them pay a
paltry Ghc90 for a large sack of maize which weighs about 130kg. In
spite of the variation in prices, the buyers are not forthcoming
creating anxiety among farmers.
“Ploughing an acre of land cost Gh140, planting of maize cost Ghc70,
spraying around Ghc80 for twice a before harvesting.Then cropping,
Ghc140, then the labourers so you will spend close to Ghc700 cedis per
acre of maize farm so it is expensive but the Price the buyers are given
us is not helpful” Godwin Mensah, a farmer lamented to Starr News
Eastern Regional Correspondent Kojo Ansah.
According to the farmers bad market price and inadequate buyers for
their produce is discouraging the youth adding that they are unable to
pay their creditors.
“The government says we the youth should go into agric yet we don’t have
good prices for our produce. After suffering to farm they come here to
cheat as but because we also need money to pay our creditors we sell it
cheaply even with that we are not getting buyers the maize are rotting.
Now we have erected cages that we are using as storage facilities but
these cages are not able store more maize”.
The farmers are appealing to government to come to their aid to buy the maize in the area.
“We want the government to come and buy the maize from us to the
warehouse because they are spoiling here. There are two warehouse in
Forifori and Maame Krobo junction but are not operational we don’t know
The farmers want the intervention of the National Food Buffer Stock
Company institution mandated to ensure the stability of food grain
supply and price which is of continuous concern to the government.
According to 2009 data by SRID, the total domestic production of maize
amounted to 1,619,600 MT with a demand of 1,197,000 MT, thus, showing a
surplus of 422,600 MT which needs to be stored which go waste.
NAFCO provide minimum guaranteed price and ready market, mop up excess
produce from all farmers in order to reduce post harvest losses
resulting from spoilage due to poor storage, thereby protecting farm
incomes but maize farmers in Maame Krobo are not benefiting from the
services of the company.
A former Member of Parliament for the area, Joseph Appiah, now the
Parliamentary candidate believe it is important to market produce in the
area to attract lore buyers.
“Our major problem in this area is high post harvest losses due to
multiple factors of bad roads and inadequate buyers so I believe we need
to fix these challenges, advertise to attract more buyers “.
Further delay in government interventions will worsen the situation at Maame Krobo as tonnes of Maize continue to go waste.
Former President and NDC Flagbearer John Dramani Mahama has been very
vociferous about how the Akufo-Addo administration has handled the
banking sector reforms but a Parliamentary record has exposed his
According to him, the current government should have concentrated on
injecting more cash into the struggling banks in order to keep them
afloat, instead of collapsing and consolidating them.
In his many declarations, Mr Mahama has postulated that the methodology
used to sanitize the banking sector leaves a lot to be desired and that
it has led to job losses of what he describes as innocent employees in
the banking sector.
This accusation of the supposed collapse of the banking sector by the
Akufo-Addo government is being heavily propagated by members of the
opposition party’s communicators.
Available documents, however, indicate that former President John
Mahama admitted to the very same banking sector he accuses Akufo-Addo
In the 2016 State of the Nation’s Address delivered in Parliament by
the former president, the NDC flagbearer made these admissions;
“Mr Speaker, over the past five years, there has been a proliferation
of microfinance companies. These companies come under the direct
supervision of the Bank of Ghana. Unfortunately, lack of effective
supervision has resulted in many cases in which microfinance companies
licensed by Bank of Ghana have breached the rules and created supposed
pyramid schemes that have eventually come crashing down”
The former President, by this statement in the 2016 version of the
State of the Nation’s Address, confessed to the banking sector crumbling
down under his tutelage.
This admission as captured in the former president’s own speech makes
nonsense of his accusation that the Presidency of Akufo-Addo is to blame
for the crisis we have witnessed in the banking sector.
Though he has chosen to be dishonest in his commentaries on the banking
sector reforms, his own words have come back to haunt him.
The Ambassador of Mexico to Ghana Her Excellency Maria de Los Angeles Arriola Aguirre, has called on the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority as part of her nation’s initiative to enhance economic relations with Ghana.
The Mexican ambassador, who was speaking to Management of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, stated that although her country has little presence in Africa, Mexico identifies Ghana as a strategic point of African development, hence chose to re-establish its embassy here.
She described her country’s reinvigorated relationship with Ghana as essential, because Ghana is playing a key role in the establishment of the African Continental Free Trade Area and would be key for Mexico to do business with Ghana.
“Today, Ghana will head the African Free Trade Area Secretariat. That means a lot. It means Ghana has gained reputation inside Africa and Ghana will be the Gateway for Mexico to come and do more business with Africa”, she stated.
She revealed that with political dialogues between Ghana and Mexico having taken place recently, Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has assured to reopen its embassy in Mexico to take advantage of Mexico’s interest in Ghana.
She said her country takes significant interest in the widening of the Ghana’s ports which would open up new opportunities for Ghana’s economic partners like Mexico. “We are interested in the opportunities for this Port which is widening to become the most important port in West Africa”, she added.
The Director General of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Michael Luguje said, the Ports Authority is taking ambitious strides to provide the needed supply chain logistics to support Ghana’s current attractiveness to the trading world.
“All the ambitious projects that we have in place, including the port expansions in both Tema and Takoradi. We are even building a new port in Keta. All that is to make sure we are a step ahead of the demand of trade”, he revealed.
He said his outfit would seek to rally stakeholders to investigate possibilities of collaboration between Ghana’s ports and Mexico.
“Mexico is a significant economy in Latin America, and we certainly would be encouraging our trading community to find what the competitive advantages are in trade with Mexico”, he asserted.
Some members of Ghana’s trade industry, who were present at the meeting, expressed some enthusiasm, to see Ghana break boundaries in trade with other countries for economic development.
“We have always been looking for ways of registering our products outside the boundaries of Ghana. We want to go global, so when there is an opportunity like this, we take it”, Elvis Blankson, Marketing Manager of GIHOC Distilleries expressed.

Atsu paid his university admission fees.
Hamid, from the mining town of Obuasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana

Examination,WASSCE, but because his mother, Hajaratu Osman invested her
savings with one of Ghana’s ailing banks, there was no way the young man

retrieve her money had proven futile.

Christian Atsu as a sponsor, Abdul Hamid and his mother rushed to Accra

to return to Obuasi to prepare for school. “I am highly grateful to
Christian Atsu for his support. Without him, I was going to stay at
home”, the teary young man told crimecheckghana

more football playing years. He has brought hope to my son”
