Former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Kojo Allotey Jacobs says God will punish all individuals making slanderous statements about ‘Eku Juice’, a pineapple juice produced by the Ekumfi Juice Factory in the Central Region.
According to him, he has seen some posts of social media suggesting that the juice was unwholesome because the word ‘Eku’ means death in the Ghanaian language Ewe.

Interacting with host Nana Yaw Kesseh on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo morning show, a visibly irritated Mr Allotey Jacobs said the false comments should be disregarded because they were targeted at ensuring that the Ekumfi area does not develop.
He said the factory has so far provided employment for over 400 persons in an area where the soil was only ideal for cultivating pineapple and coconut.
Mr Allotey Jacobs also suggested that government serves the juice at state functions and events and imposes heavy taxes on juices produced outside Ghana.
