The number of people expected to consume fufu in the Ashanti region of Ghana will cause a major earthquake in the region, environment minister prophesies.

According to the Minister, the recent tremors witnessed in parts of Accra are result of the increase in fufu pounding in the city.

“Investigations so far reveal fufu pounding caused the recent tremors. A major earthquake is expected to hit Ashanti region this Christmas due to the pounding of fufu”, the minister explained.

The minister added that plans are underway for the parliament of Ghana to place a ban on fufu pounding in the region.

Ghana has been warned that earthquake in some areas is imminent but most of the state ministers say God is in control.
