In an interview with GNA at Wa on Tuesday, Mr Insah, also a former Upper West Regional Chief Farmer of the Cocoa, Coffee and Sheanut Farmers Association, urged government to set up a Sheanut Development Board to address all challenges of the industry.

He appealed to government to establish markets for Sheanuts to prevent buying companies from monopolising the purchase of the produce to the disadvantage of producers.

Mr Insah said “As it stands now these buying companies just move into the villages to buy sheanuts at there determined prices without the knowledge of the association and without paying anything by way of taxes to the Municipal and District Assemblies”
