Lai Mohammed Says Thailand Has Commenced Moves To Establish Rice Mills In Nigeria...

The Federal Government on Sunday announced that Thailand had commenced moves to establish rice mills in Nigeria.






The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, disclosed this during a tour of some rice farms in Kebbi State.


He said the Federation Government had won its fight against rice importation, particularly from Thailand, as Nigeria had reduced its importation of rice by over 90 per cent.

“As we speak today, Thailand rice growers are making passionate appeal to the Federal Government. What they are doing now is that they want to set up rice mills in Nigeria, which means we have won,” Mohammed stated.

When asked again to explain why Thailand rice producers were pushing to set up mills in Nigeria, Mohammed replied, “Yes, Thailand wants to set up several rice mills in Nigeria because we have stopped importing from them.”

The minister stated that Nigeria was able to cut down on the importation of rice from Thailand from 644,000 metric tonnes two years ago to a little over 20,000MT currently.

  7. Who did Nigerians offend eh? What kind of leaders do we have? Ignorant and dull leaders. Doesn't this man understand the implication of letting Thailand have rice mills in Nigeria? They would become a monopoly and our small rice growers may not stand a chance.

    1. Na you mumu pass because you can only read and not comprehend all year children of anger. Where in that post did he say that Nigerian government is allowing Thailand to establish rice milk in Nigeria? So you don't understand what "begging" is. Does begging mean "allowing" to you or it means they are not allowing them.. .Therefore they are begging. Bros, he said begging us.. .May comprehension fall you. Olodo WAEC F9 parallel.
