According to the irate agricultural entrepreneur ,governments should appoint people with the right knowledge and insight to head the agricultural ministry.
He told Nana Peprah of Silver 98.3 FM in an interview that failure to properly manage farmers and agricultural production in the country over the years is due to wrong appointments and leadership deficiencies in the Ministry of Food and Agriculture.
"How do you just appoint someone who has no knowledge in agriculture to head the agricultural ministry as a minister? Do you just do it because he attained his degree in the western world, does that give him knowledge to manage agric?” Mr. Gideon Seidu angrily quizzed.
“Most of our government appointees in the Agric Ministry have never been to the farm before so they do not feel our plight whenever we call on them.” He continued.
