The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has backed claims by John Dramani Mahama that Ghana is set to experience food shortage next year.

Speaking on the same matter in an interview on Asempa FM on Thursday afternoon, Asiedu Nketiah says John Mahama is sport on.

According to the NDC General Secretary, the evidence is clear with the state of the government’s planting for food and jobs initiative.

He argues that the initiative of the Akufo-Addo government is having seriously sustainability issues and hence if things do not change, there will be food drought in Ghana next year.

“There is maize shortage and that has affected poultry farmers and others areas. If we don’t pray for things to improve there will be food footage in the country.

“The quantity of food has gone down and prices have gone up. Poultry farmers are selling their birds and that is the reality on the ground,” Asiedu Nketiah claimed.

 

Meanwhile, speaking on the same platform, the Minister of Agriculture Hon. Owusu Afriyie Akoto has rubbished those claims.

He has assured Ghanaians that there will be a bumper harvest in the country in the final months of this year to provide abundance of food.
