Concerns have been raised about the sale of river banks to private investors
The South Tongu District Director of Agriculture, Ernest Quansah, has called on government to urgently ban the reckless acquisition of lands along river banks by private investors.
He said this has become necessary to improve access to fresh water bodies for irrigated farming and other agricultural purposes.
Mr Quansah made the call during his turn at the Assembly’s Town Hall Meeting at Sogakope.
