President Muhammadu Buhari warns against persistent importation of food to Nigeria!

Nigerian President,  Muhammadu Buhari has warned against the continued importation of food to Nigeria, which he said could expose the country to more “external shocks”.

Buhari gave the warning in Abuja while receiving the new Bulgarian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Vesselin Blagoer Delcher.

According to him, the unbridled importation of food contributed in no small way  to the depletion of Nigeria’s foreign reserves and deprived  Nigerian citizens of job opportunities.

 He assured that government would evolve and implement policies that would help the country become self-sufficient in food production stressing that the country does not have unlimited resources to continue the importation of food items that can be produced locally.
