The Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, the Right Rev, Dr. Setorwu Kwadzo Ofori, has urged the government to resource all the Agricultural Training Colleges to save them from imminent collapse.

Rev Dr. Ofori said agriculture is the mainstay of Ghana’s economy and lauded the government’s Planting for Food and Jobs policy, which will enable Ghana to become self-sufficient.

He however, expressed regret at the current poor state of the Colleges of Agriculture.

The policy, he noted, must be sustained and every attempt made to ensure that Agriculture is made attractive to the younger generation, so as to make it sustainable.

The Moderator was speaking at the Commissioning Service of some Thirty-nine Ministers of the gospel at the Victory Chapel of the Global Evangelical Church at Ho Fiave, in the Volta Region.

Rev Dr. Ofori said it is sad that all the six Agricultural Colleges under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture have virtually collapsed or are operating far below their production capacities.

He called on government to extend a lifeline of two million dollars to each of the six Agricultural institutions in order to turn their current deplorable state around.
