Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong’s controversial stance on farming in Ghana has continued to receive varied responses.

The Assin Central MP in an interview on Joy News suggested that it is unwise for anyone who has made it in the ‘city’ to return to smaller towns and villages in the country to venture into farming.

He is of the opinion that such a decision is a confirmation of a person’s desire to remain poor and not become wealthy in life.

However, Senyo Hosi doesn’t seem to agree with him on this argument.

In recent years, governments have tried to encourage the youth, educated and working-class to venture into farming.

I’ll sue Ken Agyapong for slander – Joseph Yammin

This, they hope, will result in the creation of employment, creation of multiple streams of income, and ensure constant food supply in the country.

But the maverick politician thinks otherwise. According to Kennedy Agyapong anyone who is working, makes money in the cities, or educated and decides to venture into farming is not reasonable and must reconsider such position.

He mentioned litigation mainly among chiefs, corruption, lazy workers, poor work ethics and lack of dedication by workers to the progress of the company as some of the setbacks that will hinder the success of the venture.

The legislator also pointed to government’s lack of subsidies and intervention in the sector as another reason for his comments and position.

He said, “If you make money in Accra and you tell me you are going to farm you are a fool. I failed at farming not because of my management but because of litigation”

“I challenge the government; what are the inputs for you to go into farming? They are just talking. I have been there and I am telling you if I go to university, I will not go into farming. Hell no!”

Despite these odds pointed out by Kennedy Agyapong and the basis for which he has stopped all investments in farming, Senyo Hosi believes it is a viable investment option.

Senyo Hosi, quoted Kennedy Agyapong’s comments and wrote, “Dear Kennedy, I’m proud to be a fool!”
