As a developing economy, our backbone remains Agriculture. Ghana is the 2nd largest producer of cocoa and large percentage of it comes from our region particularly our 3 districts. As a member of Parliament for the good people of Dormaa east, i have consistently delivered agriculture inputs to support farmers in thier farming.I have provided chemicals and equipments necessary to improve agriculture productivity to local farmers.
I procured and shared over 20,000 palmnut seedlings to the local farmers last year 2022.I awarded the 2022 best district farmer a newly branded motor tricycle called Aboboyaa for his outstanding performance.
Okuafo pa agric college is one ultra modern facility in the district,located in kyeremasu.The college was established to train and equip the youth with skills in agriculture.The facility was fully funded by ENI, an Italian oil and gas company based in Ghana.Since the establishment of the college, over 500 youth have directly benefitted from it through enrollment. The benefits included skills and finance. I single handedly facilitated, engaged and lobbied with management of ENI to bring the project into fruition after a very keen competition from other Districts who where lobbying for same project.The facility is one of my monumental successes achieved since I became member of Parliament for Dormaa East.
