The initiative’s major goal, according to the well-known actor who also doubles as a politician and a farmer, is to increase food production, particularly in the Guan region and Northern areas of Ghana, to feed the rest of the nation.
On Monday, November 7, 2022, Dumelo posted on his Facebook page that “another key factor is to push Ghanaians to give value to what we make and use Made in Ghana items.”
It’s a terrific moment to be a farmer, he said, urging Ghanaians to “join hands to make this work.”
Ghanaians have responded to the post in a variety of ways, praising him and pushing him to keep making agriculture appealing to young people.
Dumelo has been actively engaged in agriculture over the past few years, reaping a ton of farm produce that he has shared on his social media accounts to highlight and inspire other young Ghanaians to follow in his footsteps.
He has amassed considerable wealth through cultivating rice, maize, yam ginger, and cabbage just this year. He makes investments in the farming of crops in rural areas of the nation like the Oti and Northern regions, then transfers the harvest to markets in urban areas for sale.
I’m happy to launch the “Operation Feed Ourselves” initiative this morning. The main focus of this initiative is to produce more foodstuff especially rice( from the Guan district and Northern part of Ghana), tomatoes, onions and maize from other parts of the country. pic.twitter.com/gq9cqJKkhB
