The Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) has said in its post-election report that education, infrastructure, healthcare and agriculture are the four priority areas that Ghanaians recommend for additional investment, in case government wants to increase public spending.
In the area of agriculture, the report said Ghanaians are also nearly equally split in their confidence in government to consolidate the gains made in the planting/rearing for food & job programmes in the next 4 years.
Planting for Food and Jobs is a flagship agricultural campaign of the Government, with five (5) implementation modules.
The first module PFJ (Crops) was initiated to promote food security and immediate availability of selected food crops on the market and also provide jobs for the Ghanaians.
This module was officially launched by Ghana’s President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at Goaso on April 19, 2017 in the then Brong Ahafo Region.
The second module is the Rearing for Food and Jobs which had had similar objectives as the PFJ.
