Food prices will not drop in December

Dr Charles Nyaaba, Programmes Director of the Peasant Farmers Association of Ghana, is sceptical that food prices will fall in December.

This is due to the difficulties farmers face, such as the high cost of doing business, he claims.

Dr. Nyaaba told TV3’s Roland Walker on the Big Issue on Friday, November 4, that “depending on the commodities, food prices will not come down; it will be extremely difficult for prices to come down.”

This comes as the Minister of Food and Agriculture, Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie, has stated that the Ministry will launch a programme to sell food at lower prices in Accra.

Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie stated during a meeting with farmers in Sefwi Wiaso, Western North Region, that “the ministry will take its own initiative.”

“We are going to link up with the farm gate to ensure that we put up kiosks on our compounds at the ministry, specifically for food from Sefwi Wiaso, and we are going to give it a lot of publicity,” he added.
