Australia’s High Commissioner to Ghana, Gregory Andrew, has urged Ghanaians to adopt wrapping their foods in leaves rather than rubber.
In a post on Facebook on Sunday, April 25, 2021, he shared photos of waakye (a local delicacy made from rice and beans) that he bought in leaves. Mr. Andrew has done very well to integrate himself into Ghana’s culture and often uses social media as a tool to engage Ghanaians.
From naming his dog Kofi to hosting his neighbors and then going for a walk in the bustle markets in Accra, he has endeared himself to many.
Some months ago, Mr. Andrew revealed to his followers how he tasted homemade fufu for the first time.
However, he is now advocating for Ghanaians to eat from leaves rather than the rubber that most vendors use to wrap their foods.
In a Facebook post this is what he said:
“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.”
