He hinted that he has spoken with EDAIF (Export Development Agriculture and Investment Fund) officials and has already visited the town and the market.

The final face would include Lorry Park, places of convenience and then guest houses.

The market would be extended and fence. There are so many things to be done to attract the international community.

Both of them are important to the nation so we shouldn?t undermine any of them. He appealed to the chief to deal with any situation that comes to the fulanis and the crop farmers. He has suggested a watch dog committee which will include agric staffs, traditional, farmers and fulanis. He concluded by saying we must be fare to all as Ghanaian.
