John Dumelo Urge Ghanain Local Rice Farmers To Do Something About Their Pricing

 

Ghanaian actor, farmer and politician John Dumelo in a recent post has called on local rice farmers to try and do something about their pricing.

 According to John Dumelo, It will interest you to know that imported rice( after paying all the shipping and duties at the port ) is still cheaper than our local rice.

It will interest you to know that imported rice( after paying all the shipping and duties at the port) is still cheaper than our local rice. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a farmer and a huge advocate for consumption of made in Ghana products but the patriotic patience of Ghanaians will quickly run out if our local rice farmers don’t do anything about their pricing. Same as our local chicken and the imported ones. Once it’s cheap, it’s the best. It might not be the fault of the farmers when pricing. The unit cost of producing a bag of rice depends on external factors(high-interest rates, taxes, fuel costs etc) which is beyond their control. We must do more to support farmers across the country. Competitive pricing and branding are a sine qua non to Ghanaians being patriotic but all hope is not lost. Ghana shall prosper. #Idey4u
