President says Nigeria has no business importing food

Buhari also said the three main areas of focus for his government is security, employment generation, and anti-corruption.

 

He said with the vast spread of land available in the country, Nigeria has no business importing food anymore.

Punch reports that a statement issued by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said  “Agriculture and solid minerals will mobilise youths for gainful employment. We have the capacity not to need to import food at all.

“But we need to also tackle infrastructure deficit in power, transportation, rail, road and in other areas.”

Mr. President said “Nobody invests without first knowing how secure a country is. That is why we have placed high premium on securing the country, because you cannot effectively manage a country you have not secured.

“We campaigned on zero corruption, promising that we would run an accountable government and we are keeping our promises.”

President Buhari has come under fire from some Nigerians, for saying he will not pay N5,000 stipend to unemployed youth.
