The Members of Parliament have a loan facility of US$600m before them to be considered for approval and acceptance.
This is a Cocoa Loan Facility before the distinguished house. Such loans are primarily used to develop cocoa growing areas in the country. Addressing his colleagues,Juaboso Constituency’s MP, Hon. Kwabena Mintah Akandoh, wailed before the August House with regards to this new loan facility and its distribution formerly.
He admonished the ruling party on the need to channel the said facility to develop cocoa growing roads and focus on other developmental projects in those places.
He maintained that it was wrong to always develop the big towns with cocoa loans whilst those villages that strive to produce the prestigious crop are left unattended to.
To him, if this caution of his is ignored, cocoa production may reduce drastically in five years to come.
