We don’t eat plantain only, give us variety – Patrons of PFJ market demand


Patrons of the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) market introduced by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture are calling on government to make available, a variety of foodstuffs.

According to them, plantain is not the only commodity they consume.

“Bring rice, kontomire, cocoyam, yam why have you brought only plantain without others?” they requested.

The patrons made the request when a mobile version of the PFJ market made a stop at Circle (Kwame Nkrumah Interchange), Obra Spot on Monday.

The market which has been running for nearly two weeks has offered only plantain for sale.

However, the patrons suggest that the Ministry should bring some of the foodstuffs whose prices have become unbearable at the local markets.

“We want rice and oil. Those items are expensive,” they said.

But special Advisor to the Agric Minister, George Oduro says government is working to add more food items to its basket.

According to him, other foodstuffs are available at the Agric Ministry.

“When we started, we have done plantain, yam, oil rice, kontonte and we keep on adding,” he said.
