FG Moves To Reduce Food Prices by ManirBK: 6:17pm On Nov 16, 2021
The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr Mohammed Abubakar, has said the federal government is doing everything possible to bring up stimulus that will cause a reduction in food prices.

There has been a steady rise in the prices of foodstuff in Nigeria in the past months.

The minister stated this Monday during a familiarization tour of the Agricultural Research Council of Nigeria (ARCN) in Abuja.

“We are doing everything possible to bring up some kind of stimulus that will cause a reduction in food prices, naturally nobody will just sit and watch.

“We are doing what we can to see that the agricultural sector is improved and the food that we expect for the teeming population of Nigeria is being produced, the same thing with the livestock.

“The government is doing everything possible. This President, Muhammadu Buhari, is very passionate about agriculture, about seeing that people have food every single day to eat without struggles on their tables,” the minister said.

The minister said he would support the agricultural research council and the research institutes in the country to work together to develop better crops that can yield more and resist disease and drought.

Dr Mohammed also said the President specifically directed him to make sure that the research institutes in the country were being well taken care of, adding that it was his priority to see improved capacity to conduct research so that crops can be improved upon.


The minister reiterated that the government was set to reintroduce the Growth Enhancement Scheme (GES) after the scheme was scrapped a few years ago, adding that it has found a way that would make it work better.

“My own concern is to make sure that the input gets directly to the farmers, not being withheld by middlemen.

“We will do all it takes to make sure that the system that will be rolled out gets the input to the grassroots farmers,” he said.

I wish government good luck. The prices of food in Nigeria is too high and people are suffering unnecessarily. I am hoping something can be done to bring down food prices.

Why did food prices escalate? Fulani terrorists attacking farmers.

Farmers should arm themselves or form a security arm like ESN to protect their lands. The Fulani controlled FG will not stop their killers from attacking you. That is why after Fulanis have finished attacking a village and taking over their lands, the Nigerian Army sends in soldiers to protect the newly conquered territory in the name of providing peace.

Benue people should please confirm if this is not true.

Confused government.

You are working on stimulus to bring down soaring prices of food when Bandits are still directing the affairs at most farms in the north, collecting levies and demanding shares from harvested farm produce.

Damage control. Oga, don't worry yourself. Just continue with your evil till you leave in May 2023. We have survived your terrible governance over the years and will surely see the end come 2023.

I will like to see them try…when they can’t even reduce the price of cement.

I hope they won’t flex muscle on farmers and common market sellers
