The “Rice Revolution” Starts In 2017- Dr. Nduom

Ghanaians should brace themselves for a major 'upheaval' this year. The positive shakeup has nothing to do with politics but rather to save our economy from the millions we spend on the importation of rice.

Founder and leader of the Progressive People’s Party, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, has promised to start a “rice revolution” process in Ghana this year.

The business magnate who has now turned his attention to the growing and harvesting of rice on large scale, told Kukua Nyipaye Michaels on the Anopa Bosuo show that it is now time for Ghanaians to buy rice grown in the country.

This in his view would aide us to cut down the huge amount of monies spent on the importation of rice from other countries.

In 2016, Groupe Nduom officially introduced the Edwumawura Rice, which is locally produced onto the Ghanaian market.

Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom launched the Edwumawura branded rice at two separate ceremonies at Worawora in the Volta Region and Assin Bereku in the Central Region.

According to Groupe Nduom, they expect some 4,000 out-growers to benefit from the two factories.

They have since been employed by the company to feed the factories with paddy rice.

The establishment of the local rice mill factory is part of Groupe Nduom’s commitment towards the improvement of lives of indigenous Ghanaians, majority of them being farmers and fishermen.
