Nana Attakora, the Chief Cocoa Farmer at Sefwi Akontonbra-Bokaso has revealed that for the past two years, cocoa farmers in the area have not received fertiliser from the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD).

Nana Attakora said this situation has negatively affected the businesses of cocoa farmers, adding that the government must intervene quickly to deal with the situation.

He also recounted that cocoa trees are being attacked by pesticides and, therefore, called on COCOBOD to scale up the mass cocoa spraying exercise.

Mr Attakora told Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don) on the Ghana Yensom show on Accra 100.5FM Monday, 13 May 2019 that: “For the past two years, we have not received fertilisers from the government.

“This situation is affecting our work and, so, we plead with the government and COCOBOD to come to our aid.”

“Apart from this,” he said, “pests are also attacking the cocoa trees. If the government does not act quickly, it will mean that our efforts will go waste”.
