It was a spectacular sight to behold last Friday when the Member of Parliament for the Akuapem North Constituency, Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah-Adjei who doubles as the Deputy Information Minister announced the introduction of the MP’s Special Awards at the 33rd Farmers Day celebration held at Saforo, a farming community within the Akuapem North Municipality.
The MP’s Award is aimed at motivating and inspiring farmers especially women to go into commercial farming.
Presenting the awards which included two tricycles locally known as ‘aboboyaa’ to the Best Farmer and Best Female Farmer, Ama Dokua urged the farmers in the area to continue working hard in feeding Ghanaians.
The award winners were grateful to their MP for the initiative and pledged to work very hard and make judicious use of the tricycles they have been given.
Dan Kweku Botwe; MP for Okere and Minister of Regional Reorganization & Development, Dennis Aboagye Edward; MCE for Akuapem North Municipal Assembly, Osabarima Nana Ansah Sasraku III; Chief of Mamfe and Okuapemman Kyidomhene and other important invited dignitaries all graced the ceremony.
