The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has confirmed that one of government’s flagship programme , the One Village One Dam will commence this year.
“This year, One-Village-One-Dam projects starts full operation. It is a simple, low-tech project, but these dams will make a big difference to all our lives and the livelihoods of our farmers” he told Parliament when he presented his second State of the Nation address in Accra.
Already, many of the little dams that had been abandoned, have been rehabilitated and brought back into use. A deliberate and specific intervention to help farmers is paying off, the President noted.
“Our farmers can see that the government is putting resource to back up the usual words. The 50% subsidy on fertilizer and the increase in the provision of extension services, are making a great difference to the performance of Ghanaian agriculture”.
