Cocobod incentives diverted

Mr Hamid Haddie, Kwaebibirem District Manager of Transroyal Limited, has alleged that about 2,500 cocoa farmers in the district did not receive the solar torch lights and mosquito nets distributed nationwide by Cocobod as incentives.

Mr Frank Ntow, District Manager of Akuafo Adamfo Buyers Limited, also corroborated the allegations when the two spoke to Ghana News Agency (GNA), in an interview.

The two said the items rather found their way in the open market and appealed to Cocobod to device an efficient way of distributing the items in future.

Nana Yamoa Abaasa, District Chief farmer confirmed to the GNA that the package did not benefit all cocoa farmers, explaining that the beneficiaries were registered members of Ghana Cocoa Coffee and Shea nut Farmers Association.

He however denied that the items were sold to the public.

Nana Abaasa said whoever wants to benefit from the package in future should register with the association.
