I think the government should start letting people import rice from foreign countries like Thailand,Rice, Benin Republic etc. So the price will come down.

A bag of rice is too fucking expensive in Nigeria. It seems we are not self sufficient yet. The Government can keep on supporting the local farmers so dem go improve and compete and eventually run the people importing rice out of business.

Agricultural trade deal with Oduduwa republic. If you plant these crops and think you will use them to deal with yoruba people it's a poor business plan.

Everyone wants to use Nigerians for practice exam. Nigerians are their lab rats. Feed rocks to a nation in the name of producing your own rice, and find allocation to treat mass appendicitis.

He is just playing to the gallery as usual.
Other governors have made empty promises about things they cannot control especially this rice production, here we are now, the price of a bag of rice prior to banning of importation is far higher than the locally produced ones
