Former President and NDC flagbearer John Mahama has reiterated his commitment to supporting small business owners across Ghana.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, June 18, Mahama said meeting with cashew businessman Mr. Taylor and his staff in his hometown reinforced his pledge.

"It was a humbling experience to hear their stories and campaign for their votes in the 7th of December election. It was touching to hear about the importance of his business and how it has provided employment opportunities for young people in the area," Mahama wrote.

As president, Mahama said agriculture and agro-processing remain a top priority and he aims to empower farmers and support agro-industrial processing.

His plan is to establish special agro-industrial processing zones in all sixteen regions to enhance crop values and create jobs.

"This strategic move will not only open new job opportunities but also enable us to gradually reduce our dependence on the import of strategic products currently imported as raw materials," Mahama stated.

The NDC flagbearer expressed his passion for a thriving agricultural sector, saying "I am committed to delivering on my promises to support small businesses and farmers across the country."
