President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says the abundance of food in the country can be attributed to one of his government’s flagship policies, the Planting food and Jobs programme.
Delivering his last State of the Nation’s Address in his first term, the President said his government has been vindicated by the outcome of the programme.
“Thanks to the Planting for food and jobs programme food is in abundance in our country”, he said.
Planting for Food and Jobs is a flagship agricultural Campaign of the Government, with five (5) implementation modules.
The first module PFJ (Crops) aims to promote food security and immediate availability of selected food crops on the market and also provide jobs. This module was officially launched by H. E. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo at Goaso on April 19, 2017 in the then Brong Ahafo Region.
The five Modules are Food Crops (PFJ), Planting for Export and Rural Development (PERD), Greenhouse Technology Villages (3 Villages), Rearing for Food and Jobs ( RFJ), Agricultural Mechanization Services (AMSECs)
