The Finance Committee in Parliament has cited the Ministry of Food and Agricultural (MoFA) for the duplication of programmes.
The committee observed that some of the programmes that were contained in its Ghana Agricultural Sector Investment Programme (GASIP) were fairly duplicated in the same ministry's Modernising Agriculture Programme.
As a result, the committee has directed the ministry to undertake an audit of all of its programmes and realign those found to be duplicated under the relevant programme to ensure efficiency.
This was contained in the committee's report on the request for tax waiver on imports amounting to US$1.25 million on goods and equipment to be procured for the implementation of GASIP.
As part of measures to address the numerous challenges in the country's agricultural sector and make the sector attractive again, the government introduced the GASIP in 2015.
