Stop blaming woes on colonialism – Akufo-Addo to Africa

President Nana Akufo-Addo has tasked African leaders to stop attributing the continent’s development challenges to colonialism.

The Ghanaian leader advised his African counterparts to rather find lasting solutions to challenges confronting their respective countries on the continent by engaging in productive transactions.

Mr Akufo-Addo was speaking at the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) 2018 held in Kigali, Rwanda, on the theme: “Lead. Measure. Grow. Pathways to Turn Smallholder Farmers into Sustainable Agribusiness.”

The AGRF seeks to engage stakeholders in the agriculture industry across the globe to deliberate effectively on ways of making the industry thrive.

This year’s event was held to create new pathways to boost agribusiness across the continent.

Mr Akufo-Addo said proper investment in the agriculture industry would not only ensure food security but job creation.

He cited Ghana’s Planting for Food & Jobs (PFJ) programme as an example.

For his part, President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, said Africa has the necessary avenue to succeed in agriculture.

He, however, said an effective public-private sector involvement could unleash enormous potentials in the sector.

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair moderated the discussions.
