The 2012 parliamentary N.P.P candidate for Ningo Prampram has bemoaned how

agriculture has been decentralize to the local level, now department of agriculture

without funding, he also questioned how it’s going to benefit the local farmers.

Hon. Sylvester Tetteh speaking in an interview on Agric Forum on Rite FM

question how the assemblies are going to fund the various departments of

agriculture at the level.

“How much is allocated in the budget for specific issues like irrigation, farm inputs

and training for our farmers’’, he questioned.

He noted that the central government can decentralize agriculture but the assembly

would sit down waiting for funding, the funding which is key is not readily

available, he added.

“It is good to decentralize but you decentralize with funding for them to supervise

or take a critical decision as to which areas they should look at he stated.

Hon. Tetteh noted that if the government should make rhetoric statement that it has

decentralize agriculture and therefore think everything is fine, we would be

deceiving ourselves.
