Dr Henry Lartey, the presidential candidate of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), has extolled the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for implementing the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) programme.
He told Stephen Anti on the Elections 360 programme on TV3 Thursday, October 22, that the programme saved Ghanaians against extreme hunger during the peak of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo initiated the PFJ programme to help boost food production and security in the country
Dr Lartey explained that the PFJ falls in line with the vision and philology of his party, that is the domestication.
Domestication, he explained, reinforces the need to grow what is consumed locally.
“The planting for food and jobs is very good and we ill continue with it if we win the elections, “ he said.
He added “But PFJ, Covid would have killed us. This is an excellent programme. This had made domestication very relevant.”
