Buhari Issues Stern Warning To CBN, Meets APC Governors by Ecstasy154(m): 6:20pm On Aug 13
President Muhammadu Buhari, Tuesday, in Daura, Katsina State, has disclosed that he has warned the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to stop providing foreign exchange for importation of food into the country, with the steady improvement in agricultural production, and attainment of full food security.

The President, who hosted the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors to Eid-el-Kabir lunch at his country home in Daura, said the foreign reserve will be conserved and utilized strictly for diversification of the economy, and not for encouraging more dependence on foreign food import bills.

“Don’t give a cent to anybody to import food into the country,’’ he said.

The President noted that some states like Kebbi, Ogun, Lagos, Jigawa, Ebonyi and Kano had already taken advantage of the Federal Government’s policy on agriculture with huge returns in rice farming, urging more states to plug into the ongoing revolution to feed the nation.

“We have achieved food security, and for physical security we are not doing badly,’’ he said.


President Buhari said he was particularly delighted that young Nigerians, including graduates, had started exploring agric-business and entrepreneurship, with many posting testimonies of good returns on their investments.

President Buhari said the incoming ministers will be “taught’’ and thoroughly guided to ensure they meet the targets of the APC-led government for the people, with regular monitoring of their performances and scaling up of targets by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (OSGF).

The President assured that he would attend the Presidential Policy Retreat organized for the ministers by the OSFG, and insisted on compliance with laid down targets on key sectors of the economy that will directly impact on the livelihood of Nigerians.


In his remarks, the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ekiti State, Dr John Kayode Fayemi, said the President’s sense of justice, fairness and forthrightness had turned a major inspiration to governors on the way forward for the country.

He said the challenges faced by states “were enormous’’, but the governors had remained undaunted, assuring the President of strong support and “the very best effort’’ to overcome all the obstacles.

The Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, appreciated the President for the unique leadership style of maintaining a healthy relationship with governors on individual and collective basis, pointing out that they had been “energized’’ to do more in their states.

The Governor commended the President for making bold and courageous efforts to reposition the economy for majority Nigerians through inclusive policies.

“The country is more secure than in 2015, and the country is more prosperous than in 2015 because you are working for the majority of the people,’’ he added.

The Governor said the party had been repositioned, after the 2019 elections, to work for the benefit of the majority of Nigerians, noting that “there will two elections this year and we need to work towards winning the two states.’’

cool


Badass Buhari, Ipobian importers should use their biafran pound for forex, i love my amala and ewedu and i dont need forex to import that... buhari is going to make nigerians either run out of country to asia and south africa to fvck up or seat up straight and see reasons why asians and Europeans are the most people entering Nigeria

Buhari is a bad guy, and his backward integration would cost him political popularity and make him face the elites and the ipobian greedy traders, but he is that bastard that would set things straight just like obasanjo worked hard to give yaradua a good start only for jonathan to blow it

The usual suspects will still hate him for trying to ensure internal food security.

All what they know how to do in.their lives is importation of any junk from any where in.the world. That is the sole reason.why they hate him.and they are going around with the narrative that the economy is not booming, as if a nation should be strictly import dependent.

More out of personal selfishness and to.the detriment of national growth.
