Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) says his government (when elected) will put in place measures and policies to end the fulani crisis in the country.

The Sekyere Afram Plains constituency is one of the constituencies in Ghana worst affected by the activities of Fulani herdsmen whose cattle destroy farmlands of farmers.

According to NPP flagbearer, Brazil with a population of some 200 million people has a cattle population of some 213 million. This, however, has not brought the kinds of problems we are facing here in Ghana.

“Brazil has put in place policies and measures to ensure that the animals are ranched and therefore do not ‘mingle’ with the human populace. These are the kinds of policies we will put in place if we win the election to ensure this Fulani menace is curbed, once and for all,” he added.

Nana Addo made these comments whilst campaigning in Drobonso, in the Sekyere Afram Plains constituency, in the Ashanti Region, on Saturday, March 26.

Zongo Development Fund

With a large Zongo community in the constituency, the NPP flagbearer reiterated his commitment towards the setting up of a “Zongo Development Fund” aimed at solving basic infrastructure problems existing in Zongo communities across the country.

The proper management of the country’s public finances, he added, will allow the Fund to be established.

Nana Akufo-Addo urged the people of Sekyere Afram Plains to vote for him in the presidential election, and also for the party’s parliamentary candidate, Joseph Gyamfi Owusu, aka, ‘Odenkyem’.
