The campaign for the consumption of rice is getting intense by the day and now it seems the President, Nana Akufo Addo is now leading the front line.
According to the president, all Ghanaians should try as much possible to join the campaign and patronise local rice. He made this known at the 35th National Farmers’ Day celebration held in the Volta Region.
Mr Akufo-Addo said: “The success of the government’s efforts in ensuring self-sufficiency in rice production depends largely on the level of consumption of local rice”, insisting: “We must eat what we grow to motivate our farmers and support the development of the local food industry.”
“Rebecca, my beautiful wife, our First Lady”, the President revealed: “Insists that we eat local rice at home and has made sure of this”.
“I call on all Ghanaians to follow my example and eat local rice”, the President encouraged.
