Bong County Farmers Want to be e-Registered

By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA


MONROVIA, July 27 (LINA) – Farmers in Kokoyah Statutory District, Bong County, are calling for inclusion into the E-Registration Platform
recently launched under the Liberia Agricultural Transformation Agenda (LATA).

Lead farmer Ansumana Sirleaf told the Liberia News Agency Wednesday on behalf of his colleagues that they have not been registered under the E-Registration Platform recently launched by the Liberian Government.

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf launched the Platform on May 21, 2016 at the Klay Agricultural Vocational Training Center in Bomi County.

During the launching ceremonies, the Liberian leader commended farmers for making the nation a food secure country as compared to depending on the traditional extractive resources of rubber, iron ore  and timber for the development of the country.

The E-registration platform is intended to register Liberian farmers to empower them through the supply of high yield seedlings, training, and provision of fertilizers.

The Ministry of Agriculture recently released a report in which it said it had concluded a 45-day registration of 149,000 farmers in more than
200 communities last March.

Meanwhile, Bong County Agriculture Coordinator Monica Honore has clarified that the first E-registration process was a pilot phase
intended to register a certain number of farmers across the country.

Honore revealed that the second and final phase is expected to be launched shortly.

She assured farmers who were not part of the first phase that they will be in phase two.
