Cotton farmers demand stimulus package

04
May '10
The government of Ghana has received two weeks ultimatum from the members of Cotton Farmers Association of Ghana. The association has asked the government to provide them with a stimulus package for farming during the coming season, or else the country will suffer a fall of the entire cotton industry.

Members of the association said that, they have been facing perilous conditions across the three regions of the north of the country, such as, death due to hunger and poverty. Such situations could adversely affect the cotton production of the country if they don't receive immediate support from the government.

Nashiru Adam, National Secretary of the Cotton Farmers Association of Ghana requested the government to immediately address constrains in the cotton industry for sector's revival. He further underlined that, the free school uniform concept of the government will prove to be an ineffective exercise, if the government fails to take steps to revitalize the cotton industry to speed up the activities of the Akosombo and Juapon textile firms.

He requested the government to particularly assist farmers with regards to farm machinery and other inputs, so as to help farmers continue with farming during the upcoming farming season.
