My Policies Have Made It Possible For Nigerians To Now Eat Local Rice — Buhari



The president of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the policies he introduced made it possible for Nigerians to embrace local rice..

According to President Buhari, the investments made in the last 7 years have prepared the citizens in the country to stand up to any form of disruption like pandemics and also the recent Russia-Ukraine war.

In a tweet, Prez Buhari wrote;

“Because of our policies and investments in the last seven years, towards achieving food security, Nigeria is today much better prepared to cope with the inevitable disruptions in global agricultural supply chains occasioned by Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war.”

“I said we must grow what we eat and eat what we grow. We have always been very conscious of the need to achieve food security in Nigeria, and to encourage our local farmers and rural economies.”

“This is a country that was once dependent on foreign rice. Confident that we can grow and eat Nigerian rice, we closed the border to foreign rice, and also put policies in place to support local production. Today Nigerians are eating home-grown rice.”
