Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has described as sad President Akufo-Addo’s decision to stop the supply of free fertilisers to cocoa farmers.

According to the former President, supply of the free fertiliser, seedlings and inputs to cocoa farmers led to an increase in the annual yield of cocoa.

He said he cannot understand why government will decide to stop that and rather sell the fertilizers to the farmers.

Former President Mahama, who is on a two-day tour of the Western North Region assured the people that with their continuous support, the NDC will win the 2020 elections and resume the implementation of its people-friendly policies and initiatives.

Former President Mahama, acknowledged the support of the people of Enchi and Aowin in consistently voting for the NDC, assuring them that all projects stopped by the Akufo-Addo led government will be resumed and new projects added when he wins the 2020 elections.

He said many road projects in the cocoa-growing areas being funded by the Ghana Cocoa Board have all been stopped, with roads scheduled to be completed in 2017, now in more deplorable state.
