His words:

“I am sure many of us have seen video clips of empty supermarket shelves in the Western world, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Russia-Ukraine war and economic uncertainty, which have all combined to disrupt global supply chains.

“Long before these crises, however, President Muhammadu Buhari had, in a statement that has now turned out to be prescient, admonished Nigerians to grow what they eat and eat what they produce.

“Then, many neither understood the importance of that admonition nor appreciated its relevance. “Well, it turned out that the consequence of that statement made Nigerians look inward and rely less on imports.
