The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has responded to the recent criticisms and claims made by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) regarding cocoa prices and the welfare of Ghanaian cocoa farmers
During a press conference held at the party’s headquarters, Eric Ahiagbah, the NPP’s Communication Director, vehemently criticized the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for what he termed “cheap politics” regarding the welfare of cocoa farmers in Ghana..
In response to the NDC’s allegations that cocoa farmers have been shortchanged by recent price increases, Ahiagbah dismissed these claims as “cheap politics.” He questioned the NDC’s ability to provide alternative solutions, emphasizing that their statements were “just lies.”
“The NDC, when in power, did have some policies like the building of the Ekumfi Juice Factory. However, it’s important to note that we cannot disregard the NDC; they are just engaged in cheap politics,” Ahiagbah stated during the press conference. “The NDC, as a party, has no alternative solutions for Ghanaians and, by far, the cocoa farmer.”
The NDC, meanwhile, has maintained its position, calling for increased support and better conditions for cocoa farmers.
