Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), Ghana, in a press statement has debunked rumours of plastic rice on the country’s market. The statement follows videos on social media claiming the existence of plastic rice which suggest that these may be on the Ghanaian market.

It indicated that FDA became aware of the videos late last year and immediately commenced investigations to ascertain the truth or otherwise of the rumours.

The investigation, the release said, used a nationwide market surveillance program with random samples being subjected to laboratory investigation. Results from laboratory analysis indicated that all samples were authentic rice and not plastic.

Lecturer at Dept. Of English - UCC, Dr. Sarfo Sarfo Kantanka

A lecturer at the Department of English, University of Cape Coast, Dr. Kwabena Sarfo Sarfo-Kantanka, says it would be totally unfair for the Ghana Education Service (GES) to sanction the teacher in the Assin South District who was compelled to improvise the use of stones for a mouse in a computer class.

According to him, the GES cannot pretend not to be in the known of the lack of resources for teaching within the educational sector, especially when practical sessions are concerned.
