The 26th celebration and honouring of Ghanaian farmers and fishermen is underway in Somanya in the Eastern Region.
More than 800 farmers and fishermen have trouped to the durbar amid the display of their work and achievement over the years and with a common desire to help Government achieve food security in the country.
The National Farmers Day on every 1st Friday in December each year seeks to honour Ghanaian farmers and fishermen for their hard work and dedication to ensuring food sufficiency in Ghana, especially at a time when there is a global concern of food insecurity.
The President, Professor John Evans Atta Mills who is among a host of other dignitaries within and outside Ghana, is expected to among others, touch on government policies and programmes needed for the modernisation of Ghana’s agricultural sector.
It is widely expected that winners of this year’s award will take home several prizes, including vehicle, tractors and set of matching implements.
