Director At Federal Ministry Of Agriculture Says Nigeria Has Attained Food Sufficiency

Maimuna Habib, director of projects coordinating unit at the federal ministry of agriculture and rural development, says Nigeria has attained food sufficiency.






Habib who spoke in Abuja during a programme held in commemoration of the World Food Day said the country had gone into value addition of its commodities from the north to the south.


The director added that farmers have started making money from seed products and crop production.
“We have attained food sufficiency; all we need to do is to blow our trumpet because no foreigner will tell anybody what is happening in the country,” Habib said.

“Looking at all that is happening in agricultural sector, we have gone into value addition of all our commodities from the North to the South, all over the country we have added value to all our products.


“Most of the farmers are women and youths, we have trained them, we have empowered them and they are happy.”
Habib said the border closure remained one of the best decisions in the country’s quest for food sufficiency.

“When we bring imported food into the country our own foods go nowhere, there is no market for us but now there is market, farmers are making more money, ” she said.
“I am a farmer and I know how much I sold my maize and cowpea seeds recently. ”

On the high prices of goods, she said it was a normal occurrence because of the closed border, adding that the prices would soon crash.

She said: “The prices will soon crash, it’s just because people are feeling we do not have enough food to have closed the border, but we have enough food in the country. “
