Saviour Church tasked to establish Agric-mechanisation centre

Osiem (E/R), Oct. 3, GNA -The Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, has challenged the Saviour Church to establish an Agricultural Mechanisation Centre in line with the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) Green Revolution programme, captured in its Manifesto for 2017 – 2021.

Osiem (E/R), Oct. 3, GNA -The Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, has challenged the Saviour Church to establish an Agricultural Mechanisation Centre in line with the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) Green Revolution programme, captured in its Manifesto for 2017 – 2021.

The next Government of the NDC seeks to establish one of such centres in every district as parts of efforts to boost agricultural production to boost food security.

 Mr Debrah explained that such a facility would, therefore, help in the modernisation of the Agricultural Programme of the Church and also provide opportunity for the Church to also support farmers around their farms with their equipment.

    Mr Debrah was speaking at the Fourth Mini Convention of the Saviour Church at Osiem at which he represented President John Dramani Mahama.

     Mr Debrah explained that in addition to public centers that would be established, private individuals would be encouraged to establish their own with State support.

   The Convention was attended by more than 2000 members of the Church from all over the country.

   The Saviour Church has heavily invested in farming with production fields in different places across the country, while individual members of the Church their farms as well.

   The Eastern Regional Minister, Mrs Mavis Ama Frimpong Gati, said the Government had improved on many roads in the Region and constructed new ones.

      She said the Government had also helped to solve the water problem that faced the people in the Akwapem area and those communities in the Upper Myna District staying along the pipeline from Anyaboni to Koforidua.

   Earlier in a sermon, the leader of the Church, Opanyin Abraham Adusei, urged Christians to be humble and submit themselves to God for them to receive His blessings.

    He said the church had acquired about  a 16-kilometre of land at the Afram Plains for farming and gave the assurance that the Church would take up the challenge to set up the mechanisation centre.
