Nigeria Will Become Net Exporter Of Food, Says Tinubu by Paraman: 9:26pm On Feb 11
President Bola Tinubu on Sunday said his administration is keen to make Nigeria self-sufficient in food production and become a net exporter of agricultural products through what he called “aggressive mechanisation.”

He affirmed his administration’s support to give ease and succour to the 2024 Hajj pilgrims.

“Nigeria will become a net exporter of food…through aggressive mechanization,” Tinubu told a delegation from the Global Tijaniyya Movement led by Khalifa Muhammad Mahe Niass, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, on Sunday.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, Tinubu emphasised the importance of spiritual endeavours in nation-building, vowing to support religious activities.

The statement is titled, ‘President Tinubu: We are determined to achieve food sufficiency for Nigeria.’

On Agriculture, he said, “Nigeria will become a net exporter of food. We are bringing thousands of tractors.

“Food production will be greatly expanded through aggressive mechanisation. We must be productive as a people.

“That is the Sunnah and the principles I grew up understanding.”


He also outlined plans to bolster agricultural productivity through various initiatives, including the expansion of farmlands, the provision of low-interest loans to farmers, and significant investments in irrigation infrastructure.

Tinubu highlighted the need for collaboration between political and spiritual leaders to advance the nation’s interests and promote unity among the people saying, “We are dedicated to equipping hospitals with modern equipment, providing healthcare professionals with training, and ensuring social welfare for every citizen, including comprehensive health insurance coverage.”

He thanked the Global Tijaniyya Movement for their support and prayers, emphasising the importance of collective efforts in building a better Nigeria.

On his part, the Khalifa of Tijaniyya, Sheikh Mahe Niass who spoke on the delegation’s behalf, commended President Tinubu for his unwavering commitment to Nigeria’s peace, progress, and stability.

Niass “expressed confidence in the President’s leadership and conveyed the fervent support and prayers of members of the Global Tijaniyya Movement to the Nigerian leader,” read the statement.

During their visit, the delegation offered prayers for the nation’s progress, unity and prosperity and for Almighty Allah to grant President Tinubu wisdom, strength and success.

This is not the right time for these kind of talks... The country is bleeding right now and we need to pipe low on extravagant promises.

Most policies by the BAT government is yet to yield any tangible results and bring respite to the masses

Hmmm!

We are exporting food due to the low cost it offers our neighbour nations whose currencies have suddenly found value against our naira.

While they mop-up our food, we are dying of hunger from food scarcity.

Where are his advisers when you need them!!

I feel the government needs to import on the short run because the way the price of foodstuffs is shooting up is scary. A short term solution is needed.

I believe there are people handling Tinubu and he doesn’t know. They’re telling him that he’s doing well just like buhari. A man that says he doesn’t go to social media that he has his kids telling him what’s going on there.

All TALKS.. NO PLANS.. NO ACTIONS..

You can rig politics. You can rig the process.
BUT YOU CANNOT RIG THE GOVERNANCE.

GOVERNANCE IS NOT BY SAYING SWEET THINGS TO PLEASE THE PEOPLE.
BUHARI TRIED IT AND FAILED WOEFULLY..

YOU EITHER GOVERN WELL, OR YOU FAIL AT IT.

How can this be achieved when farmers can not comfortably farm cos of herdsmen and kidnapers, can't this people be a little bit sensible and realistic. How about you look for the root cause of a problem and the reason for the massive outcry of hunger before bringing in your unrealistic dreams. Na to just open mouth wah begin promise. It's so annoying cos even a five year old child can be more reasonable than this bunch of people

Re: Nigeria Will Become Net Exporter Of Food, Says Tinubu by Inspirer1: 5:29am On Feb 12
Hope it's not more hardship,

I suspect so because we learnt govt people said other countries are coming to our country to buy food because it is cheap, whereas Nigerians are suffering and finding it difficult to buy the food.

None of gov't promises has yielded positive for the masses, Not even a single one since they came to power.

They removed subsidy cos it was cheaper for neighbouring countries, yet they later went ahead to float the Naira, Naira weakened against other currencies, don't you know you've automatically made the petrol cheaper for them again but expensive for Nigerians who have to spend a weaker Naira.

All of these at only the expense of ordinary Nigerians.
