The Federal Government has announced its decision to abstain from importing food into Nigeria as part of its strategy to combat high food prices and economic challenges. This resolution was reached during an emergency meeting at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, attended by President Bola Tinubu, Vice President Kashim Shettima, and state governors.

According to the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, importing food would exacerbate Nigeria’s economic struggles. Instead, emphasis will be placed on increasing agricultural production. A committee has been established to address grain hoarding, consisting of the National Security Adviser, the Director-General of the Department of State Services, and the Inspector-General of Police.
