A 10-member district taskforce assigned the job of ensuring fair and transparent distribution of cocoa inputs including chemicals and fertilizers, has been inaugurated with a call to it to demonstrate integrity.

Mr. James Kofi Kutsoati, Deputy Chief Executive, Operations, Ghana Cocobod, asked that it acted to prevent stealing and diversion of the items meant to aid the farmer to increase crop yield.

Again, it should assist farmers through education, to safely and properly apply the chemicals on their farms to achieve optimal results.

He spoke of the need to make sure that nobody was discriminated against or denied their fair share of the inputs.

Dr. Francis Baah, Executive Director, Cocoa Health and Extension Division, cautioned anybody with the evil agenda to divert any of the inputs to have a change of heart in their own interest.

He warned of the prosecution of offenders, adding that, the Ghanaian farmer would not be shortchanged.

Mr. Jonathan Kwao-Sarbah, an official of National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) and a member of the task force, gave the assurance that they were not going to disappoint.

The taskforce would work diligently to serve the farmers’ interest to help raise the nation’s cocoa production level.
