Community Development Alliance an NGO is demanding a thorough audit into the subsidised fertilizer programme introduced in 2017 saying it is fraught with widespread irregularities and corruption.
The NGO operating in the Upper West region said it has uncovered mass fraud and smuggling of the manure meant for local farmers after conducting a baseline study in the Sissala West and Lambussie districts during last year’s farming season.
CDA-Ghana Executive Director, Salifu Issifu Kanton told journalists at breakfast meeting in Wa that the government subsidised fertilizer programme was good, but noted there are challenges with its implementation that ought to be reviewed.
He said the programme was not new in the country, but its implementation has not yielded the desired impact on productivity and income of smallholder farmers who were expected to benefit from the scheme.
