The Chief Executive of Cocobod, Mr. Joseph Boahen Aidoo, has pledged the government’s resolve to go the extra mile to make cocoa farming more rewarding.

He said it was targeting per acre average yield of 25 bags of cocoa – harvest between 200 and 300 pods from every tree.

This, he added, was going to be achieved on the back of the Cocobod’s various interventions including artificial pollination and irrigation of cocoa farms.

Mr. Aidoo was speaking during an inspection of cocoa farms at Segyimase in the East Akim Municipality.

He indicated that through the artificial pollination, there was going to be a sharp rise from the current five per cent of flowers that developed into cocoa pods to between 80 and 90 per cent.

He noted that things would only get better for the farmers and talked them out of giving out farmlands and cocoa farms for mining.

The substantial increase in production levels would boost returns to the farmer.

Mr. Aidoo called for the cocoa farmers to take advantage of the government’s interventions to properly maintain their farms, to boost their output and transform their lives.

Opposing groups within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Tatale/Sanguli Constituency of the Northern Region have ironed out their differences and resolved to work together in the interest of the party and the Government in the area.

  During the 2016 General Election, Mr James Cecil Yanwube, the then Member of Parliament for Tatale/Sanguli, broke away from the NPP and contested as an independent candidate.

 The NPP, which fielded Mr Thomas Mbomba as its 2016 Parliamentary Candidate for the Constituency, however, lost the seat to the National Democratic Congress.

 President Nana Akufo-Addo, upon assumption of power, nominated Mr Mbomba as the District Chief Executive for the Tatale/Sanguli District, who has duly been confirmed by the Assembly.

 NPP stalwarts in the Region and the Constituency believe it was when the camps of Mr Mbomba and Mr Yanwube were united that the party could win the parliamentary seat in the 2020 elections.

  At a forum over the weekend at Tatale, organised by the NPP, Mr Yanwube promised his total allegiance to the party and pledged to work with his former rival, Mr Mbomba, to ensure that the party remained strong at the Constituency.

 He also urged his supporters to return to the party and support the Government in its quest to develop the area.

 Mr Mbomba promised to remain accessible to all as well as work to address the concerns of all in the district.

 Mr Sule Salifu, the Northern Director of Youth Employment Agency, commended both camps for uniting to strengthen the party in the area.

 He assured party members of government’s support in the form of micro credits and other schemes to undertake their businesses.
