Buhari to Nigerians: ‘No Money’ for Food Importation This Year

President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that the country has no money for food importation this year owing to the challenges from the novel Coronavirus which is impacting the nation’s economy.
Buhari noted these short­ly after observing this year’s Eid prayer alongside members of his family and few presidential aides at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Sunday.
It will be recalled that the country’s borders are closed due to importation and smuggling activities of items such as petrol, rice, poultry amongst others even to human movement due to the Corona Virus.
In his words:

“I wish the farmers will go to farms and save the lives so that we can produce what we need in sufficient quantity so that we don’t have to import food.
“In any, we don’t have any money to import food. So we must produce what we are going to eat.’’

On the pan­demic, he adviced Ni­gerians to strictly adhere to guidelines and measures put in place against the spread of the deadly virus in the country.
