Barely nine months after 48-year-old farmer Ibrahim Musah, was adjudged the 2015 National Best Farmer he’s yet to receive the car which forms part of his prize package.

According to him, he’s now fed up of asking the Ministry when his car will be presented to him as promised.

For his prize, Ibrahim Musah was to receive a three-bedroom house, a car, GH¢3,000 from Kasapreko Distilleries, a desk top computer with printer, a lap top and a certificate.

He won the award with a record of cultivating 207 acres of maize, 10 acres of cocoyam, a seven-acre cassava plantation, 12 acres of citrus, 10 acres of plantain, two acres of okro, six acres of yam, one acre of tomatoes, 20 acres of teak, 12 acres of oil palm and two acres of pepper.

With poultry and livestock as at last year, he had 150,000 layers, 40 guinea fowls, 80 goats and sheep, 40 herds of cattle, 70 local birds, 49 turkeys, as well as the cultivation of mushroom, tilapia and cat fish ponds, among others.

Speaking with Kasapa News, Ibrahim Musah, who confirmed that the house is being built for him, however stated that he’s displeased about the long wait in receiving the car.

“I have asked the deputy Minister of Agric, Hanah Bissiw repeatedly about this car, but she keeps telling me to have patience…it is nine months down the line and I’m yet to hear anything convincing about me receiving the car. On the internet it is indicated that the prize includes a house and a car. By the month of October, ahead of the event in December  I’ll have to hand over to a new person who will be selected for the award, and all attention will be focused on him/her. My predecessor has told me he never received a car as part of the prize package, so I may have to forget about the car.”

Meanwhile, officials of the Ministry of Agriculture have been unavailable to speak to the issue.
