According to the Federal Government, Nigeria can feed itself and even export food, so it doesn’t need to import food from other nations.

At a press conference on Thursday in Aso Villa, Abuja, Mohammed Idris, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, disclosed this.

In the interest of our nation, it has also been decided that food importation will not be necessary at this time, he stated. Nigeria has the capacity to feed its own population and could even export food to other nations.

“To increase the amount of food that is available to Nigerians, the governors have also decided to work with the president to increase their own investments in the agricultural sector.”

It goes without saying that these investments also go toward the development of livestock. These measures are all taken to guarantee food availability.

Speaking on Thursday, Idris followed President Bola Tinubu’s meeting at the villa with the 36 state governors.

A board to control the nation’s food commodity prices would not be established, according to the President.

Establishing a price control board is something I refuse to do. Food imports will not receive my approval either,” Tinubu said.

Several ministers, the Inspector-General of Police, the Vice President, the National Security Advisor, and the Director-General of the DSS were present at the meeting.

Because of the high cost of living and food prices, protests had started in a number of the nation’s states.

However, Tinubu asserted that Nigerians could escape the food crisis under his administration.

In order to help farmers grow more food, he said, the FG would provide programs.

The quick but careful execution of our plans for livestock development and management, which includes dairy farming among other things, is something else we must consider, according to Tinubu.
