In other news, former president John Dramani Mahama says he feels sorry for the plight of cocoa farmers under the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to him, it is wicked on the part of President Akufo-Addo to stop the supply of free fertilisers to cocoa farmers and rather allow the fertilisers to expire.

He said the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration implemented some good policies for cocoa farmers, but all that has been undone by the current government.
