A mixed crop farmer at Kpong Ahudzo in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipality and an ardent listener of Rite FM, popularly known as Rasta Wisdom has expressed disappointment in the organizing committee of the farmers’ day for failing to recognize the contributions of Rite FM to the agric sector.
Rite FM over the past decade and a half has championed the cause of the country’s farmers, a contribution many have lauded.
The National Farmers Day is commemorated each year on the first Friday of December to honour our gallant Farmers and Fishers. The event acknowledges the vital position Farmers and Fishers occupy in the nations socio-economic development.
There have however been calls for the recognition of Rite FM on the day due to the massive contributions of the station to the cause of the country’s agriculture sector.
Rasta Wisdom who expressed these sentiments on the Rite Morning Ride with host host Captain Adabugar said he was highly disappointed in government’s inability to award the station during past farmers’ day celebrations and most recently, the 33rd farmers’ day celebration.
“I’m highly disappointed in the government for not recognizing and awarding Rite FM during the recent farmers’ day celebration,” he said.
According to the farmer, while other media houses across the country are seriously making money from their regular programs, Rite FM on the other hand has decided to go into agriculture and social development by organizing forums to find solutions to the challenges that farmers face.
“Rite FM is really doing well for the development of agriculture and if the government wants to achieve its aim of moving agricultural production to the highest level, a radio station like rite FM must be supported to continue with the good work that is doing,” he added.
In particular, Ghana acknowledges farmers and fishers untiring efforts at feeding the growing population, providing raw materials to the nation’s industries, and contributing substantially to the nation’s foreign exchange earnings.
