President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has called on Ghanaians to consume locally-produced rice as a means to empower farmers.
Nana Addo reveals how the first lady of the Republic, Rebecca Akufo-Addo ensures they eat local rice in their matrimonial home.
In a message to mark Farmers’ Day, the President said: “We must eat what we grow to motivate our farmers and support the development of the local food industry.
