Poultry farmer’s challenges to be discussed at an inter-ministerial level

According to the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, “worrying” concerns about a lack of demand for eggs from local poultry farms will be addressed inter-ministerially.

However, speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show on Monday, the Ministry’s PRO, Bagbara Tanko, did not provide any further details on this development.

“It is a source of concern for every Ghanaian and the ministry, so I believe we should hold an inter-ministerial discussion on this matter in the future.”

“I won’t be able to give timelines, but there will be a resolution,” he stated in his remarks on the subject.

Mr. Tanko added that the Finance, Education, and Trade and Industries ministries will be involved in these discussions.

According to Kofi Asare, Executive Director of Africa Education Watch, the main cause of this problem has been Senior High Schools’ inability to procure eggs in line with previous trends due to a lack of funds.

The NGO discovered market disruption caused by a lack of demand for eggs by Senior High Schools as part of its research into the impact of school closures during the coronavirus pandemic on the poultry sector.

Because the Buffer Stock Company does not purchase perishable goods, schools purchase the eggs directly.

Mr. Tanko admitted that something had clearly gone wrong this year that needed to be investigated because these concerns had not previously occurred.

“We haven’t encountered this problem since 2007, so something went wrong somewhere… the ability to purchase from these farmers.”

“Someone has definitely not done his or her work well somewhere, which I can’t explain,” he said.

Mr. Asare also stated on the Citi Breakfast Show that “there is no policy directive that compels schools to even buy the eggs.”

As a result, the only protein available during financial difficulties is mackerel.

Africa Education Watch’s investigations revealed that “a certain company has the contract to supply all the schools with mackerel.”
