The Sunyani Municipal Directorate of Agriculture has presented 19 motorbikes with two helmets each to Agriculture Extension Agents (AEAs) in the Municipality to enhance the implementation of the government's agricultural programmes.
They were procured under the Modernizing Agriculture in Ghana (MAG) and the Planting for Food and Jobs (PfFJs) and they are to facilitate regular visits to the field by the AEAs to provide the needed services to farmers.
Madam Justina Owusu-Banahene, the Municipal Chief Executive, called on the beneficiaries to use the motorbikes for its intended purpose.
She warned that anyone who would be caught using the motorbike for any illegal purpose would be handed over to the Police for prosecution.
Mr Ofosu Dankyera, the Municipal Director of Agriculture, on behalf of the AEAs, expressed gratitude to government saying they would work harder to sustain the two programmes.
