DECEMBER POLLS:"Akufo-Addo Wants Your Vote That’s Why He Has Increased Cocoa Prices" – Asiedu Nketia
General Secretary of the largest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has lambasted President Akufo-Addo saying the recent increment in cocoa prices is a deliberate attempt to win votes of the producers ahead of the December polls.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Nkwantaso in the Dormaa West District of the Bono Region, Mr Asiedu Nketia said Akufo-Addo has found a way of wiping the “Not” in the “Not for sale” inscription on cocoa fertilizer bags.
“Akufo-Addo has found a way to wipe away the “NOT” in the “NOT FOR SALE” inscription on those fertilizer bags and he is now selling it to you; when he saw that the pressure mounted on him by you cocoa farmers was unbearable, he now says he’s giving the fertilizers to you on credit,”he said
” I came to assure you that, John Mahama is coming back in January so consider those fertilizers you took on credit to be free of charge and tear the repayment coupons and throw them away”, he added.
Refuting the claims by the opposition NDC President Akufo-Addo stated that anybody who says the increase in the price of cocoa is an electoral gimmick certainly has not been paying attention to his policies for the cocoa sector.
