Create Your Own Village And Rule Them; You’ll Never Be President – Yaa Titi Jabs Afriyie-Akoto



‘Iron Lady’ Regina Yaa Titi Okrah, co-host of Maakye on Onua TV/FM has observed outgoing Agric. Minister, Owusu Afriyie Akoto would best serve as president if he creates his own village and rule them.

She says Mr. Afriyie Akoto’s performance as Agric Minister is so poor that he shouldn’t have harnessed the dream of becoming the first gentleman of the land.

Analysing his political achievements since taking office as a lawmaker in 2009, the former two-term Kwadaso MP according to Media General’s Northern sector Bureau Chief, William Evans-Nkum, performed satisfactorily despite his party being in opposition the time he was a legislator.

His temper, Mr. Evens-Nkum noted, is what was nothing to write home about as a leader.

After leaving Parliament in 2017, President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo assuming office made him the minister of Food and Agriculture until his resignation two days ago.

Accessing his performance as sector minister, Mr. Afriyie Akoto according to Yaa Titi has many unpopular records which makes his recent ambition boggles reasonable minds.

“In your time alone, mass cocoa spraying ceased. Free fertilizers were being sold to farmers. The hike in food prices is unprecedented and now food inflation is 41% in Ghana’s 54% inflation rate. Planting for Food and Jobs, what did you do with it? You spent millions of dollars to fight the Fall Army Worm (FAW) and you haven’t rendered any better account to Ghanaians on the amount. And you still want us to vote for you as President when you couldn’t even manage a single ministry? It will be better if you create your own village and rule them because you will never be president. Even the primaries you will not win,” she was confident.

The FAW that plagued Ghana in 2016 affected about 18,000 hectors of farmlands causing the country $64 million in fighting it according to a Ghana News Agency report in June 2017.

Dr Roger Kanton, the Deputy Director of CSIR- Savannah Agricultural Research Institute (SARI) announced this at Kpaliga, a farming community in the Kumbungu district during a sensitisation programme on the FAW problem.
