Ghana: Mahama charges African gov'ts to empower women in agriculture

Former President John Dramani Mahama has made a case for governments on the continent to take an interest in empowering women in agriculture in order to achieve food security.

“Africa must achieve food security for its people by increasing agricultural productivity…This cannot be done without the active participation of the African woman,” Mr. Mahama said today while delivering the key note address at the ongoing Women in Agriculture Summit in Marrakech, Morocco.

With Africa's population expected to grow astronomically, food security will be key on a continent with huge untapped agricultural potentials, the former Ghanaian leader noted.
