Kennedy Ohene Agyapong have made some rather unfortunate and ignorant comments about farming, in an interview with Joy FM…
Speaking about why he doesn’t invest into farming anymore, he says it’s not lucrative and only people who want to be poor ventures into it.
“When you wake up in the morning and you pray that God let me be poor, then you go into farming,” he told Joy News.
According to him, unlike the usual championing of farming done by government, telling people to go into it, there’s actually no inputs for someone to go into it.
“I challenge the government; what are the inputs for you to go into farming? They are just talking. I’ve been there and I’m telling you, if I go to university, I will not go into farming. Hell no!” Ken Agyapong said
He added that if you make money and invest it into farming, you’re a fool.
He continued: “If you make money in Accra and you tell me you are going to farm, you are a fool. I failed at farming not because of my management but because of litigation”.
