If you are hungry go to farm, Buhari tells Nigerians

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to go to the farm if they are hungry, saying they have no reason to complain.

The President who gave an interview on Tambarin Hausa TV on Wednesday, said God has blessed Nigeria with enough rain for the people to engage in agriculture.

He stated that the floods that ravaged farmland and attacks by Fulani herdsmen on farmers are not a reason to stay away from agriculture.

“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 farm land 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,” said Buhari.
