Australia’s High Commissioner to Ghana, Gregory Andrew, has urged Ghanaians to adopt the use of leaves rather than rubber for food in a Facebook post on Sunday.
In a post on his Facebook timeline, he shared photos of waakye that he bought in leaves.
In his post, he is advocating for Ghanaians to eat from leaves rather than the rubber packages that vendors use to wrap their foods.
Waakye is a Ghanaian dish made from rice and beans usually served with gari, sallad or spaghetti. Topped with shito, tomato stew and any meat or fish of one’s choice.
His post was captioned;
“Ahaban papa w) h) aa, wo se roba. Ghanafuor mo mma yenfa ahaban ndi y3n ara y3n jollof. 3no na 3y3,” he wrote on Facebook
“Make wanna enjoy Ghana jollof for leaves innez den shun the rubber. Leaves be better pass.”
