The commodity

Made in Ghana  Garri has been observed to be one of the greatest attraction to Nigerians at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair.

Newsmen report that Nigerians were seen waiting patiently for the product, which was neatly packaged in 125 grammes sachet and labeled “Crispy Gari Mix’’ on display at the Ghana stand.

The product said to be mixed with groundnut and sugar was being sold for N170 per 125g.

NAN reports that many Nigerians were seen waiting patiently for their turns to buy and taste the Garri packed in attractive blue and white sachets.

The Commodity Manager, Mr Ernest Boateng, said he was highly impressed with the sale within two days of showcasing the product in Nigeria.

“I am surprised at the high patronage between yesterday and today, amongst other product we brought for sale, this one sells more,’’ he said.

Mr Oshodi Tunde, one of the buyers who was seen eating the product directly from the pack, advised Nigerians to copy the innovative idea.

“ Nigerians should make use of this idea by packaging Garri with sugar and groundnut for sale too.

“We should stop looking for white collar jobs and try to do something meaningful with our country’s resources,’’ he said. NAN
