According to her, it is unbelievable, the “incompetent Minister for Agriculture actually went ahead to sell plantains in the ministry” while quizzing if plantain is the only food item Ghanaians eat.

In a Facebook post, she said should this be a standard of measuring the performance of the Agric Minister, then all farmers will qualify to be Agric Ministers.

“Who would have thought that six years down the line, a debate about food prices will ensue and government will pour plantain at the centre of Ghana’s ministerial enclave to sell at controlled prices? I simply can’t believe the obviously failed and incompetent Minister for Agriculture actually went ahead to sell plantains in the ministry.

Is plantain the only food item Ghanaians eat and which is expensive to buy today? How can the sale of plantains at controlled prices ensure food security for our entire population? And should all Ghanaians move to the ministry in Accra to buy the plantain at the controlled prices?”

“What a disaster! If this is the measure of a Minister’s performance then all our farmers would be excellent Agriculture Ministers,” she shared.

As part of the efforts to control prices of foodstuff, the Ministry of Food and Agriculture began selling foodstuff within its premises to serve people in Accra.

The product is brought from the farms to the ministry and sold to consumers at a cheaper price.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal have received a stern warning from Kalusha Bwalya that Ghana is capable of winning their World Cup group-stage match. WHAT OCCURED? The Black Stars will play the Selecao at Stadium 974 (Rass Abou Aboud) on Thursday to open their campaign at the international competition in the Gulf country. Ghana, coached by Otto Addo, will be anxious to get off to a good start against a potent Portugal team that includes Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United. The 59-year-old Bwalya, who has earned the eighth-most caps for Zambia, believes that the Black Stars have what it takes to defeat the Selecao. WHAT HE SAID: "They should enter the match as Ghana. They are a very good team, a very strong team, and they can go there and dish it out against the best in the world. I feel they have a chance in the first game, to earn a favourable result," Bwalya said to SuperSport TV. If they succeed in getting the desired outcome, they will demonstrate to the other teams in the group that they are serious competitors. WHOLE LOT MORE, However, Bwalya cautioned the Black Stars against losing their opening match, stating that it would be a bad indicator for their tournament ambitions. "The opening game in a tournament is crucial because there are only three games. If you lose the first game, the hand breaks are revealed, you are exposed, you risk everything in the next game, and you are then headed back home. THE BIGGER PICTURE: After appearing in the 2006, 2010, and 2014 World Cups, Ghana will be competing in their fourth World Cup. In 2010, when they made it past the group stage and into the quarterfinals before losing to Uruguay on penalties, they put on their best performance. WHAT'S NEXT FOR GHANA: Following their encounter against Portugal, Ghana, who is in Group H, will play again on November 28 against South Korea at Education City Stadium before finishing their group games on December 2 against Uruguay at Al Janoub Stadium.
