Government set to increase price of cocoa this year – COCOBOD CEO



Government set to increase price of cocoa this year – COCOBOD CEO

Government set to increase price of cocoa this year; The Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Joseph Boahene Aidoo has hinted of conclusive discussions with President Nana Akufo-Addo to increase the price of Cocoa in the coming months this year.

Currently, the government buys one bag of Cocoa beans from farmers at 515.00 Ghana cedis.

The CEO said since the Cocoa sector was the backbone of Ghana’s economy which help to ensure the stability of the cedi, COCOBOD and the government have taken bold decisions that will inure to the welfare of the 1.2 million Cocoa farmers in Ghana.

Mr. Boahen-Aidoo said this during an engagement with Cocoa farmers at separate functions at Nsuaem No.2 and Wassa-Afransie as part of a working visit to Dunkwa-On-Offin and Wassa-Akropong Districts in the Western South Cocoa Region.

Mr.Boahene-Aidoo, who is also the Nkosohene (Development Chief) of Nsuaem No.2, said as part of efforts to ensure that Cocoa farmers enjoyed the fruits of their labor, Ghana now fixes and dictates the price of Cocoa for the world, hence the need for farmers to expand their acreage and adopt sound cultural practices on their farms to harvest at least 20 bags per 1 acre.

The CEO of COCOBOD told farmers that the government had sourced a-200-million dollar fund from the Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) in South Africa to deal with the swollen shoot disease which was rife in the Wassa-Akropong and Dunkwa Districts by cutting the diseased trees for re-planting through extension officers and employed youth in the area.

Mr.Boahene-Aidoo lamented that 60 million seedlings were given to farmers during the Mahama administration but ironically, over 200 million hectares of Cocoa went bad in the Cocoa Regions of Ghana.

It is against this backdrop that COCOBOD has embarked upon regular tour and visits to cocoa farms to inspect mass pruning, advise farmers not to patronize unapproved chemicals by COCOBOD on their farms, adding that about 30,000 pollinators have been employed to undertake the hand pollination exercise in all the 1.2 million Cocoa farms across the country.

Mr.Boahene Aidoo noted that farmers were not harvesting up to 1,000 pods on their Cocoa trees due to non-compliance with cultural practices.

He announced that the government has earmarked an incentive package for farmers who observed sound cultural practices to increase productivity.

Eight pastors who flouted the government’s directives on public gatherings and went ahead to hold church services, were on Monday, granted GH¢10,000.00 bail each with two sureties each, by the Asokwa District Court in Kumasi.

They are Apostle Kofi Nkansah Sarkodie, Leader and General Overseer of Open Arms Ministry at North Suntreso in Kumasi and his son, Kofi Nkansah Sarkodie Junior, Administrator of the Church.

Others are Apostle Moses Adebwenu, Pastors Eric Anim Acheampong, Richard Domfeh Mensah, Rexford Agyei, Johnson Addai and Richard Antwi, all of the True to Heaven Ministry at Atonso-Aprabon, in the Asokwa Municipality.

They have been charged with unlawful assembly by the police and were asked to reappear before the court presided over by Mrs. Rosemary Asante on Thursday, March 26, this year.

The accused were arrested on Sunday March 22, this year, by the Ashanti Regional Police SWAT team, for conducting church services, contrary to the directives by the President for all churches to stop organizing services as part of measures to control the spread of COVID-19.

Chief Superintendent Kofi Blagodze, prosecuting, told the court that the church leaders were apprehended separately at North Suntreso and Atonso-Aprabon, after the police got information that, they were holding church services in defiance of the directives by the government.

He said Apostle Sarkodie was arrested sometime last week on the same offence and granted police enquiry bail, but went on to defy the order and held another service on Sunday March 22, this year.

Chief Superintendent Blagodze, said the other six pastors were arrested separately for similar offence and brought before the court.
