Deputy Minister of Transport and Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema East, Daniel Titus-Glover, has revealed his next line of work after officially ending his political career.
The Tema East Member of Parliament says he will go into farming which he considers to be among the most lucrative jobs any person could venture into.
He, therefore, urged the youth to get involved in farming rather than look upon it with disdain.
“When I quit politics I will venture into farming, it’s very lucrative and I wish the youth will go into it. When I become a farmer, I will have a big farm and ensure that I farm to the benefit of others,” he said on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem on Monday.
Aside the financial gains, the MP believes farming is also a major source of employment for the large unemployed Ghanaian youth.
Ghana marked the 35th Farmers’ Day celebration to recognise the farmers, fishermen and other agricultural workers who have excelled in the year under review.
Farmers’ Day is marked on the first Friday of the month of December every year, and is observed as a national holiday.
This year’s National Best Farmer is Mr Charles Gyamfi from the Tano North District in the Ahafo Region.
