Per a Peacefmonline.com report, the industry players clearly understood the mechanism as it was introduced to them.

A joint statement revealed “this system takes into consideration a fixed living income differential which would provide farmers a decent income.”

On Wednesday, June 12, 2019, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire announced in a joint statement that they had won concessions from stakeholders in the cocoa industry.

Meanwhile, the majority leader and minister of parliamentary affairs, has asked Ghanaians to see politicians as individuals who seek to make returns on their campaign investments and not as people who are responsible for giving out free things.

In his opinion, the biggest problem within the Ghanaian political system is a situation where constituents decide to overly rely on legislators for their basic needs.
