The former president of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has said Africa’s prosperity resides in the business of Agriculture.
Wishing Africans on the African Union (AU) Day today, Mahama described agriculture as “one of the surest ways to leapfrog Africa from poverty to prosperity”.
“We’ve come a long way since May 25, 1963, when the OAU was formed. But we have many more steep mountains to climb.
“With this year’s AU Day celebration focused on Africa’s indigenous foods, diversity, and nutritional value, I congratulate our farmers and urge governments and the business community to invest more in agriculture, value addition, and marketing of African products”, he posted on Facebook.
This year’s AU Day is themed “Strengthening Resilience in Nutrition and Food Security on the African Continent”
