According to him, 13 states of the federation had been identified for the production of the crop and the Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, had already been briefed on how best to achieve the target.
The president, who decried the way and manner the nation’s scarce resources were wasted on the importation of food items by the previous regimes, said unless the economy is set right, Nigeria will continue to be in trouble.

On the devaluation of naira, Buhari insisted that he was yet to be convinced about the economic benefits of the exercise.



“What do we derive from that, how much benefit can we derive from this ruthless devaluation of the naira?
“I’m not an economist neither a businessman, I fail to appreciate what is the economic explanation ,” he said.
