‘What a disaster’ – Joyce Bawah Mogtari on sale of plantain at Agric Ministry


An aide to former President John Dramani Mahama, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, has described moves by the Agric Minister to sell foodstuff at its premises to control prices as a disaster.

According to her, it is unbelievable that the “incompetent Minister for Agriculture actually went ahead to sell plantains at the ministry”.

In a Facebook post, she said if this was the standard for measuring the performance of the sector minister, then all farmers would be excellent Agric Ministers.

“I simply can’t believe the obviously failed and incompetent Minister for Agriculture actually went ahead to sell plantains in the ministry. Is plantain the only food item Ghanaians eat and which is expensive to buy today?

“How can the sale of plantains at controlled prices ensure food security for our entire population?

“And should all Ghanaians move to the ministry in Accra to buy the plantain at the controlled prices?”, the former aide added.

As part of efforts to control prices of foodstuff, the Ministry of Food and Agriculture began selling foodstuff within its premises to serve people in Accra.

The products are brought from the farms to the ministry and sold to consumers at a cheaper price.

However, when the project commenced, plantain was the only item at the venue.
