As part of this year’s farmers day celebration, Ghanaian musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, has presented items worth GHC150,000 to the District Chief Executive of the Amansie West District Assembly, Hon. Nii Larteh Ollenu as prize package for all winning farmers in the district.
Handing over the items, Shatta Wale was full of praises for farmers across the world. “Farming is important because it provides food and jobs for the population. As a country, I think it is time we embrace industrial farming which provides a large amount of food at a relatively low cost and hugely contributes to the industrial development of the country. More jobs will be created for the youth and more people which will help solve the unemployment situation in the county”, he stated.
The event which was held at the Big Park Hotel located at Mpatuam was attended by Nana Asamoah Tia II, Chief of Mpatuam, Hon. Joseph Albert Quarm, Member of Parliament for the Manso Nkwanta Constituency and Mr. Dominic Oppong, Chief Executive Officer of Big Park Hotel.
