Founder and leader of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has encouraged Ghanaians to patronize locally manufactured commodities to support the stability of our economy.
The CEO for Groupe Nduom stated that it is better for Ghanaians to develop an interest in buying locally produced rice compared to the imported ones.
Speaking on ATV’s Ghana Great and Strong show the PPP leader educated viewers that locally produced rice were healthy as compared to the foreign brands.
The PPP stalwart noted that brands such as Champion long grain rice, Copa Jasmine long grain rice and the Edwumawura rice which are produced in Ghana were tastier to eat when cooked and served.
“It is advisable to take a lot of water in addition to fibrous food like rice to prevent sickness in the body. Ghana is said to be an importer of rice to the tune of over 500,000,000 USD every year but rice is produced right here in Ghana”, he said.
Dr. Nduom continued that “brown rice is said to be extremely beneficial for the normal functioning of the nervous system and the production of sex hormones”.
The PPP leader cautioned Ghanaians to develop the taste for local rice to enhance the production of rice in Ghana.
