Produce more, Nigeria has less resources for food Importation, Buhari tell Farmers

The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has advised farmers to double up and increase their food production as Nigeria has no funds for the importation of food.

Before the ongoing pandemic, Nigeria has placed a ban on the importation of food as the country is doing all its best to produce a lot of the food it consumes. Also, borders with neighbouring countries were shut, which is mostly to prevent the importation and smuggling of items such as rice, poultry and petrol.

The President gave this advice to the farmers while journalists were addressed after the Eid Prayer was observed at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, on Sunday.

“I wish them the very best of luck… and I hope the rainy season will be favourable to get lots of food.”

“I sincerely wish that the farmers could be in their farms so that we can sufficiently produce all that we need so that we won’t import anything. At the moment, we don’t have enough money to import we have to produce what we have to eat,” he stated.
