“Women farm owners, farm partners, and farm labourers provide 70 to 80% of the country’s food.

“I have plans to create globally competitive industries, make commercial farming attractive like what pertains in Cote D’Ivoire, Tanzania and other industrial countries. Ghana is well endowed with minerals, and would be used to turn the economic fortunes of the country around,”.

He also reiterated his plans to establish a scholarship scheme with his presidential salary to fund the education of poor and needy students in the country.

“I will not take and enjoy my salary. It will be channelled as a scholarship to pay the fees of the poor, and I believe it will promote Ghana’s development in more ways than one.”

Kennedy Agyapong however, hinted that he would “rely on the counsel and wisdom of the traditional rulers” in his administration.

Meanwhile, he has pledged to give out 200 bulbs to replace the broken ones in the market and to fix meters to help resolve challenges posed to the traders by the use of a single meter.
