The main opposition party’s Presidential candidate Waziri Atiku Abubakar as exposed a lie in the much-acclaimed achievement. Of the Buhari led-administration on agriculture.

The former VP said President Muhammadu Buhari and his Administration lied on claims that rice production had improved since coming into office in 2015.

Atiku said this in a statement through his Presidential campaign office.

The statement reads: on several occasions, the Buhari administration has bragged that their biggest achievement is reducing Nigeria’s dependence on foreign rice.

Recently, president Buhari himself made this boast when he said British Prime Minister, Theresa May on April 16, 2018 as follows ‘’we have cut rice importation by about 90%, made lots of savings of foreign exchange, and generated employment. People had rushed to the cities to get oil money, at the expense of framing. But luckily, they are now going back to the farms. Even professions are going back to the land. We are marking steady progress on the road to security”.

This claim was also made by the minister of agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, who on May 2, 2018 said as follows:

“unemployment in Thailand was one of the lowest in the World,1.2 percent, it has gone up to four percent because seven giant rice mills have shut down because Nigeria’s import has fallen by 95 percent on rice alone.

All the above claim is a BIG LIE.

WORLD MARKET AND TRADE REPORT of the USDA shows that, Nigeria imported three million metric tonnes of rice in 2018, which is 400,000 metric tonnes more than 2017 imported product.

An appeal was then made to President Buhari and his led-administration to please be truthful with Nigeria.
