Demand For Ghana Garri Causes Long Queue At Lagos Int. Trade Fair


Many Nigerians over the weekend queued at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair scrambling for “Garri” that is made in Ghana.

According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, the product which was neatly packaged in 125 grammes sachet and labeled “Crispy Gari Mix’’, was on display at the Ghana stand at the Fair.

The product was mixed with groundnut and sugar and was being sold for N170 per 125g at the Ghana stand.

Many Nigerians were seen waiting patiently for their turns to buy the Garri packed in attractive blue and white sachets.

The Commodity Manager, Mr Ernest Boateng, said he was highly impressed with the volume of sales 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.
