There is no food in the country – Sultan of Sokoto

There is no food in the country - Sultan of Sokoto
Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Monday urged the Nigerian Customs Service to lift bans placed on importation of foreign foods citing that there is an impending hunger in the country due to lack of imports.

His words:

“There is no food in the country hence the need for the borders to be reopened for rice importation. The policy should be revisited with a view to make amends and ameliorate the suffering of Nigerians.

“Nigerians must be duly informed about the negative effect smuggling has on the nation’s economy.”
