Nigeria Now Second Largest Producer Of Rice In The World -buhari by sarrki(m): 11:56am On Sep 11, 2018
By Andrew Essien
The Federal government has stated that because of the conscientious efforts of the President Muhammdu Buhari-led administration, the country has just achieved the record of being the second largest producer of rice in the world.

It also added that a recent survey revealed that because of the federal government's alternative revenue generation drive that puts more emphasis on agriculture, 48,000 new millonires all from Kebbi State alone, had emerged from growing rice, adding that its job creation drive was at its all time high with 300,000 last year and 500,000 more jobs to be given this year.

This, the administration said, would not have been possible if President Muhammdu Buhari had not come to office, dislodging the last government of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who's continued stay at the helms of affairs, allegedly would have resulted in insurgents taking over the seat of government.

Senior Special Assistant to the Presidentify on Media, Shehu Garba, said this over the weekend at the special interactive section with students of various institutions organized by Citizen Support for Good Governmence in Nigeria (CSGGN) in Abuja, even as he added that the President's only desire is a "future that is secure and stable for young generations".



"All of the money earned was just going to buy food. As I speak to you now Nigeria just achieved the record of the second largest of rice in the world. The rice revolution just started a year ago. A newspaper did an investigation in Kebbi and they found out that there were 48,000 new millionaires in Kebbi state alone for growing rice. Over reliance on oil has killed this country and we cannot continue like this.

Garbage said: "The jobs are being created last year we promised half a million jobs, the economy couldn't support it but before the close of the year we had done more than 300,000 the balance that will be carried into the new year. And another 500,000 will be given jobs and I'm happy that the economy is getting better, oil price is going up and the policies of government in the Niger Delta are beginning to calm things down.

"This why in his messages he has stayed on three key issues, he has reported this over and over again, he says this country cannot make any progress without security. And look at all of the way the efforts that has been put in rolling back Boko Haram. There are many people who believe that of not for president Muhammadu Buhari, PDP had continued in this country in 2015 they would have taken over Aso Rock by now".

On the current administration's Anti corruption gains, he said "Look at the hug amount of money in a neighbourhood that had no electricity, no road, no water, in the same compound, you had low level working Nigerians. They didn't know they resided in a compound billions of Naira was kept from stolen funds.

"The important policy of whistle blower that the president has instituted, it gives an opportunity to me, you and to every citizen of this country. If you see stolen money going anywhere, you will not only be honoured for pointing it out for discovery but you can earn a commission. So reward by exposing that. About $10 million and they give $2.5 of that. That money can change one's life".

Speaking on the fight against corruption, one of the panelists Alhaji Tahir Abubakar Umar, identified greed, poverty, illiteracy among others as reasons responsible fir corruption, adding that the country has lost over a trillion Naira to corruption.



Umar said the corruption fight of President Buhari's government responsible for the celebration of his death rumours recently by some people he described as "corrupt elements "

He recommended that the administration should not be deterred by the antics of some corrupt individuals.

In his own, Engr. Chinedu Okpala, said President Buhari led administration has laid a good foundation which has created fears in the minds of those who may wish to peroetrate evil in public offuces.

He said it is a right of the citizens to criticise government while it is also the right of the same citizens to ahow patriorism to the same government.

The CSGGN National convener Moses Abdullahi, told the gathering that Nigerian youths are at the receiving end of various looting that has taken place in the past, hence the need to support the present government of President Bugari to fight corruption to a stand

Which survey was carried out please? How did they arrive at this ranking?

As at May 2018, no African country featured among the top 10 rice producers in the world! Asia is king when it comes to rice and even in Africa, Egypt produces more than Nigeria. Why do APC idiots like to tell lifeless lies like these?

lol...


this vile administration can only deceive those who chose to be gullible & can not research simple matters.


in fact, it has been proven time & again, that pmb's supporters are the easiest set of people to deceive & manipulate... why? they are too lazy to carry out simple research.


while this story is certainly a lie, it is instructive to note that rice production in Nigeria has actually been on a decline & has even been stagnated for the last 2 years...

https://www.indexmundi.com/agriculture/?country=ng&commodity=milled-rice&graph=production


the records show that production actually declined from 3900+ MT in 2015 to 3700+MT in 2016 & it remained so for 2017...


so if with a higher production Nigeria was not no. 2 in 2015, pray tell, how can Nigeria be no. 1 with an even reduced production?


except other major producers have suddenly stopped producing rice...



pmb & his band of misfits should take it easy on the lies please...

Thanks to the Buhari administration's initiative of diversifying the economy (with the special focus on Agriculture), Nigeria has saved about $800 million by encouraging local production of rice in Nigeria.
Re: Nigeria Now Second Largest Producer Of Rice In The World -buhari by KingRagnar: 1:39pm On Sep 11, 2018
With the amount of rice being produced on a daily basis in Ebonyi, Niger State, Cross River and other rice producing states, it is believable that we are the second highest rice producing country in the world. PMB is committed to the idea of producing what we eat and it is yielding results greatly.
