According to Buhari: ‘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.’

In another report, Mr. Daniel Bwala who is a spokesman of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign has asserted that Bola Tinubu’s manifesto is purely a campaign against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
