Ghanaian actor and politician, John Dumelo, has wished to see many youths in the country venturing into farming.
In a post written by the aspiring Member of Parliament to commemorate farmers’ day in Ghana, he charged the youth to take advantage of farming which he sees as a very lucrative business.
He postulated that it won’t take them much effort to be successful if they work smartly.
Like any other business, John Dumelo hinted about the ups and downs in the farming business but it comes with many benefits.
He wrote: “I’m a proud farmer. I have snails, cattle, goats, pigs and grasscutters. I also grow maize on acres of land to sell and also to feed the grasscutters and pigs. Farming is a very lucrative business, it has its ups and downs but eventually it’s very rewarding. Farming is not really about working hard, it’s about working smart. What and when you sow will determine what you reap. My advice to the youth, let’s all get involved in agriculture. It’s not an avenue to make fast money but it’s an avenue to grow steadily in wealth at the same time feeding yourself and the nation. Happy farmers day!”
The first Friday of every December is used to celebrate hardworking farmers in Ghana. We wish all farmers in the country a happy holiday and Ayekoo!!!
