The Ghana Cocoa Board in the Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa District has within the past one year supplied 463,500 hybrid cocoa seedlings to farmers in the area, as part of efforts to increase cocoa production in the country.

The beneficiaries included swollen shoot treated farms, rehabilitated farms as well as newly established farms.

The District Chief Executive for the area, Mrs. Georgina Nkrumah Aboah, who was addressing an assembly meeting at Breman Asikuma, said the district had been relatively calm.

She appealed to the assembly members to preach peace at all times for the district to continue to have peace. “When there is unrest, the assembly’s already precarious financial situation worsens, thereby depriving communities of vital social amenities.

“Let us together encourage political activists to use their campaign platforms to promote peace, unity and tolerance in the run-up campaigns to the December elections,” Mr. Aboah said.
