The Torgorme Traditional Authority within the North Tongu District has called on the government and authorities to launch about 15000 acres of land under the Kpong Left Bank Irrigation Project (KLBIP).

This, in accordance to the Authority, will allow farmers to interact in industrial farming and export high-value crops which will reduce the hardship within the area.

The smallholder farmers under the KLBIP or Torgorme Irrigation Project made the call throughout a press convention on Monday to drum house their grievances.

Chairman of the Group, Emmanuel Worlanyo Essoh noted that it’s unacceptable the manner during which the Ghana Commercial Agricultural Project (GCAP) is defiantly ignoring the allocation of irrigation farmlands under the Kpong Left Bank Irrigation Project to smallholder farmers.

Mr. Essoh said it has grow to be needed for the group to put stress on GCAP to fulfill the goals and aims of the Kpong Left Bank Irrigation Project (KLBIP).

Mr. Essoh said for the previous 5 years, their hopes of returning the farms have been dashed main to anxiousness, frustration, hardship, poverty and destitution among the many native population.

“Our people now struggle and fight among themselves over little patches of lands outside the project command area for small farming activities which also makes it impossible for men to provide for their families with some losing control over their wives and children in some cases. Also, death has become commonplace in our communities,” he lamented.
