-Former government appointee drops politics and takes to farming
-The former minister was of the view that his farming activities would contribute to national development
-The ex-minister served under the erstwhile John Mahama-led administration
A former Food and Agriculture Minister, Alhaji Mohammed Muniru- Limuna has ventured into full-time farming after stepping down as the sector minister.
The minister who served under the leadership of ex-President John Dramani Mahama has relegated politics to the background and has made up his mind to expand his farm
It is believed that the former government official was into subsistence farming prior to his government appointment.
The former minister indicated that his intention to go into full-scale farming was going to be his own way of contributing to national development. He added that he was going to employ many people to help him with his farm extension and was hopeful that produce from his farm was going to feed some portions of the country reducing our food dependency on foreign produce.
The ex-government appointee who hails from Damongo in the West Gonja District in the Northern Region of Ghana is believed to come from a line of farmers who were into crop and animal farming.
Alhaji Mohammed Muniru- Limuna reiterated the point that one did not necessarily have a government appointment to be able to contribute to national development. He stressed on the fact that what he intended to do was in itself, a way of contributing to nation-building.
The politician-turned-full-scale-farmer was hopeful; of the exploits of his initiative but was weary of the recent outbreak of fall army worms which were destroying crops in some parts of the country.
