“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.
“This has saved Nigerians from hunger, especially during the prolonged global lockdown, when exporting nations shut their ports and borders and nations that relied on imports were struggling to meet their needs.”
The News Agency of Nigeria reports the scorecard series was launched in October as part of an overall programme to showcase and document the numerous achievements of the Buhari administration In an opening remark, Mohammed noted that despite the crises affecting the cost of living globally, the administration had done well since assuming office in the area of self-sufficiency in most basic needs.
