President Muhammadu Buhari has advised Nigerian farmers to produce more food as Nigeria has ‘no money’ for food importation.

Buhari who stated this while addressing journalists after observing ‘Eid’ prayer at the Presidential Villa on Sunday, also prayed for a bountiful raining season.

“I wish them (farmers) the best of luck… I hope the rainy season will be bountiful, to get a lot of food.

“I wish the farmers could go and stay in their farms so that we can produce what we need sufficiently so that we don’t have to import.

“In any case, we don’t have money to import so we must produce what we have to eat,” he said.

KanyiDaily recalls that Nigerian farmers had warned that the country may face starvation in 2021 due to the lockdown across the nation caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
