Let’s Reverse the Bad Image of Cocobod

The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Cocoa Board (Cocobod) Joseph Boahen Aidoo, has tasked the staff of the Board to work hard to change the bad image the board has gained in the recent past.

Mr. Aidoo says in recent times very negative stories have been published in the media as well as the politicisation of certain issues about Cocobod which he described as unpleasant.

The Chief Executive said these Thursday, June 8, 2017, while interacting with staff of the Board from the Ashanti and Brong Ahafo Regions at Sunyani.

He, therefore, tasked the workers to work hard to turn the fortunes on the cocoa industry around.

He described as a worry, the low cocoa production currently saying the trend must be reversed immediately.

Mr. Aidoo said his administration inherited a deficit of about 10 billion Cedis which he must deal with, a situation he considers a hindrance to providing improved service for workers of the board.

The Chief Executive urged workers to champion the new initiatives to increase production which include pollinating the cocoa flowers artificially.
