ASUOGYAMAN:Assembly signs MOU for animals’ husbandry
The Asuogyaman District Assembly is hopping to become a major player in the production of animals to meet the protein needs of the country and to use it to generate employment to the youth.
To this end, the assembly has signed an MOU with General Agriculture and Investment Company Limited for large scale animals’ husbandry.
District Chief Executive for the district, Johnson Ahiakpor disclosing this to Ghanadistricts.com said the company is expected to invest some 5million dollars into animal husbandry to be located at Nkwakubew one of the resettlement communities established by the Volta River Authority.
The facility is an abandoned farm which is expected to be revamped to meet this need.
Though different animals are expected to be reared, the focus would be on piggery and poultry. Ghana is known to be a major consumer of poultry products and the company is looking forward to taking advantage to meet the demands of the people.
This modern farm to be established on a 100 acre land would also have research departments, incubatory among others. It would serve as a research institution for higher learning and for training people especially the youth in the area to become major producers of animals for consumption or to feed other farms across the country.
The DCE called on the chiefs and people to cooperate in order to make the project to take off smoothly.
The MD of the Company, Mr. Justice Amoateng thanked the DCE for creating a conducive working environment for the project to roll out.
