Buhari Says Nigeria No Longer Has Money To Import Food Due To The lmpact Of COVID-19

President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria no longer has money to import food owing to the impact of COVID-19 on the nation’s economy.




While speaking with journalists during the Eid celebrations at the state house on Sunday, the president described the impact of the virus as “frightening”.

He said the pandemic has affected both the developed and the developing countries.

“Nigerians can see that the COVID-19 has reduced us, both the developing and developed countries, to the same level,” he said.
In fact, we have fewer casualties than they have. So, it’s a very frightening development.”

The president asked farmers to maximise the season of rainfall to increase food production.

“I hope the rainy season would be bountiful so that we can get a lot of food,” Buhari said.
I wish the farmers will go to farms so that we can produce what we need in sufficient quantity so that we don’t have to import food.

“In any case, we don’t have any money to import food. So, we must produce what we are going to eat.”

From The Cable

    1. You read my mind, it’s only in a place like Nigeria that a leader would give this directive with no formal support to the sector. Then when there is no food they will be casting blame anyhow. Useless leader.

  12. This man is taking nonsense, this is what late Abah Kyarri was always preventing by not letting him give public speech, if Aisha don't step up, this man will mess up badly. Government has been importing food for people in Nigeria indeed

  13. See all the years they did nothing to advance the nation now this is what it has come to. Every nation is looking out for itself and its citizens, nobody is going to deprive their ppl for some black ppl in Africa because their leaders were too corrupt, lazy and idiotic to prepare and put things in the reserves for them. So what will happen to those ppl who cannot stockpile or who do not have relatives in the abroad who can ship barrels to them? The giant of Africa? See, at times like these it is not education, beauty, status or any of those things that matter, all that matters now is human survival and the ability to get food. Just like the St. Maarten Prime Minister said in her viral video, food is what you need to have. Look at the great Nigeria, look at what Nigeria is because the black men placed in power brought her to her knees.

  14. Nigerians like to read just to criticize, and not to comprehend.

    Only 10% of the comments here show that they understand the import of President's message.

    1. Less than 10% if you ask me..

      What's bad in what the president?

      Isn't it a wise decision to grow our own food at least..

    2. They just hate for no reason and the sad part is they re mentally lazy! Is it not a good thing if we eat wat we produce? Why shud we be importing food in d first place? We re simply been told there ll b no frivolous spending on food importation..

  15. Hey, where are those bvs who mocked that Prophet, T. B. Joshua for saying Nigerians should farm to help their economy? Or that food business and agriculture will thrive?

    None of you foresaw Covid-19's devastation of the world's economy.

    God uses the foolish things of this life to confound the wise.

  16. So we import food? I thought borders was shut against importation of food so we can eat what we produce? So where do we import food from? I thought you said what our farmers are producing is sufficient to feed the country?

    APC govt talking from both sides of the mouth. God will deliver you from the lying Spirit.

  17. At the end of the day, farmers would capitalize on that to increase the cost of food. Na we be our enemy.
