Japan Motors Trading Company Ltd (JMTC), a dealer of Nissan, Foton and Yamaha products has handed over new cargo Tricycles to the Ministries of Food and Agriculture and Fisheries & Aquaculture Development.
This is to support the celebration of this year’s national Farmer’s Day as Japan Motors has consistently donated since its inception.
Abdul-Somad Alhassan Musah, Assistant MD of Japan Motors who was present at both Ministries to present the tricycles said, “we’re are proud to support the two ministries in motivating our gallant farmers.
“We believe in Ghana and the local economy hence the reason we have invested in the state-of-the-art Nissan vehicle assembly plant that now locally assembles the Nissan Navarra pickup which will be very useful for farmers”.
Mohammed Hardi Tuferu, Deputy Agric Minister in charge of Crops who received the donation thanked Japan Motors for their commitment to partnering with the Ministry to motivate the farmers.
“This tricycle is a unique product and we believe it has come at the right time to boost Agriculture and augment government’s Planting for Food and Jobs programme with a vision that more jobs will be created.
“Also, it will lead to the production of more food to feed the nation and ensure food security to enable the farmers to earn a decent income to support their families”.
On his part, Kwasi Armo-Himbson, Chief Director at Fisheries Ministry who received the donation described it as a novelty.
He explained that fishing is not only about looking for the fish but the marketing aspect. As such this Cargo tricycle will assist in moving the fish for processing and to the final consumer.
