General News of Wednesday, 17 April 2019Source: classfmonline.comOpuni Trial: Not a single farmer ever complained about Lithovit fertiliser – AG’s witnessFormer COCOBOD CEO, Dr Stephen Kwabena OpuniThe second prosecution witness in the case involving a former CEO of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Dr Stephen Opuni and businessman Seidu Agongo, has told the court that farmers never complained about the use of Agricult’s Lithovit Liquid fertiliser. And while working in the cocoa fields on your operations in 5 of the 6 cocoa regions, it did not come to your knowledge that Lithovit fertiliser was distributed to farmers? Yes...during those periods, as I have already told the court, there was no re-evaluation of Lithovit foliar fertiliser. It is your position that during these 3 years, you never saw the product Lithovit Liquid fertiliser on any of your field visits. So, the first time you had an opportunity to discuss or comment on the Lithovit fertiliser that was supplied by Agricult was at the police station.
