Gari and Beans sellers threatens to go on strike
Gari and Beans sellers in the Twifo Atti-Morkwa District threaten to go on strike due to high prices of beans and palm oil
Gari and beans, often known as “Gobe,” have recently risen in popularity as one of Ghana’s most popular local specialties since they are inexpensive and can satisfy a person’s hunger for a long period of time.
Again, gobe has various health benefits for its consumers because to the diversity of nutrient-dense ingredients utilized in its preparation, including beans, palm oil, ripe plantains, and others.

In the meantime, because the materials for creating such popular dish for their large customer base in the district are so expensive, the vendors of it in the Twifo Atti-Mortwa district of central region have threatened an ongoing strike action.
The vendors lamented that the high costs of these ingredients—beans and palm oil being the two most important ones—have escalated and are having a terrible influence on the “Gobe” industry in an interview with the Wassa East-based radio station WASSAMAN FM.
Customers frequently express scathing complaints about the amount of gobe provided to them, but the vendors said that this is not their fault and is instead the result of the nation’s high inflation rate.
To continue preparing the people’s food, the vendors are pleading with the government to address and find a long-term solution to the ongoing cedi’s depreciation against the dollar and to control the nation’s accelerating inflation.
