A former MP for Mampong Constituency, Hon. Francis Addai Nimo has said food security and sufficiency are most paramount for upholding agricultural base and boosting the food-basket of the country.
The former Member of Parliament explained these were policies that developed countries thrived on and were crucial to the development of a country. He commended Government’s flagship Planting for Food and Jobs Programme as a relevant policy to witness growth as a country.
