According to him, 50 new farmer service centres are already being designed across the country to provide subsidized fertilizers, agricultural mechanization services, improved seeds to farmers in all parts of this country.
He indicated that his next term of office will see a massive investment in the real sector which is the sector that creates jobs across the country. John Mahama added that through the move, millions of jobs will be created for the youth.
He said that the achievement of these plans will be facilitated through intensified research by the academia.
