Mr William Desmond Ocloo, National Democratic Congress Parliamentary Candidate for Shaai-Osudoku, has called on Ghanaians to control their eating habits so that they could stay healthy at all times.
He said eating more vegetables and avoiding fatty foods is good enough to make the body very healthy.
Mr Ocloo made the call at the opening of a day’s food fair at Dodowa in the Greater Accra Region.
The fair organised by the Dodowa Keep Fit Club, was sponsored by Blister’s Limited, an Ashaiman-based pharmaceutical company.
It was aimed at showcasing the rich local food and also promoting tourism in the Shai-Osudoku District.
Mr Ocloo, who initiated the discovery of Chenku and Kokrobo Falls over River Dodowa, advocated the hosting of ‘Dangme Fest’ in the near future, which would seek to harness the tourism potential in the district.
Mr Windel Tei Mensah, Chairman of the Dodowa Keep Fit Club commended Blister’s Limited for sponsoring the activities of the club over the years.
He urged the youth to go into productive ventures such as agriculture which he said is considered to be lucrative.
Mr Titi Ankamah, Director of Blister’s Limited, gave the assurance that his company would continue to support the activities of the club in the ensuing years.
He said the company would soon go into the production of hospital products, which would contribute to the quality healthcare delivery.
In a cooking contest, Group ‘B’ defied all odds to emerged winner from a group of five and received an 18-carat pot and some products of the sponsors as their prize. GNA
