The Government is projecting a loss of 2.6 billion cedis in the 2024 budget contrary to the assertion by the Agric Minister, Dr. Bryan Acheampong
However, the Asunafo South MP, Hon. Eric Opoku flatly rejects the assertions of the minister.
Speaking during the approval of a $800 million syndicated loan for the purchase of cocoa beans for the 2023/2024 season, Bryan Acheampong stated that COCOBOD has made the turn for the better.
Hon. Opoku questioned why COCOBOD is spending over 300 million cedis to buy solar lamps for farmers amid the crisis.
According to Minority lawmaker, the losses of COCOBOD is down to mismanagement and reckless expenses nothing more or less.
