President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Nigerians have no reason to complain of hunger as there are farmlands in the country, and God has blessed us with rain.
The president reportedly said this during an interview with Tambarin Hausa TV, in Kano State. In the interview, Buhari said that one of the policies he undertook upon assuming office in 2015 was to block the Nigerian borders from food importation and force people back to farms.

“I took that decision to stop rice importation and said we should farm what we eat or die of hunger. I said that since we have farmland and God has blessed us with rain, what reason does a Nigerian have to say he’s hungry?

If you are hungry, go to the farm. I’m aware that floods have ravaged some farmlands this season but we are still selling rice made in Nigeria, and we can feed ourselves. Is that not an achievement? We have workers who left their air-conditioned offices and went into farming, and they had bounty harvests. So, we are grateful,” he said.
