Ghanaian actor/farmer, John Dumelo has tasked African leaders to invest in the Agriculture industry as a means of saving the African economies.
John Dumelo who recently got married to his long time girlfriend in a lavish ceremony indicated that he was saddened that some African countries still need food aid when there can be an internal resolve to the situation if the right measures are put in place.
He has therefore charged African leaders to invest in agriculture to feed their people and make money out of it.
In a tweet to mark African Union (AU) Day, which was celebrated on Friday, 25 May 2018, the award winning actor said: “It’s sad that some African countries still need food aid. On the occasion of AU day, I charge African presidents to invest in agriculture. It’s a billion dollar industry and that can save African economies. Let’s feed ourselves whiles making money out of it.”
As a farmer, Mr Dumelo owns a three-acre cassava farm in the Manya Krobo community in the Eastern Region which he hopes to expand to 10 acres soon.
John Dumelo who has been named the most influential Ghanaian celebrity on social media also owns other livestock farms at different parts of the country.
