Mr. John Peter Amewu, Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, has lamented over the plight of peasant farmers who have lost their lands and thrown into abject poverty as a result of land grabbing.

The Minister was also not happy about “galamsey” activities, militating against commercialized agriculture, thereby posing a great threat to food security and water bodies.
