You Have No Right To Complain Of Hunger Because There’s Land, Rain For Farming – Buhari

The Nigerian President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.) has said the people of the country have no right to complain of hunger under his regime, adding that those complaining of hunger should return to the farm.

President Buhari said this, on Wednesday, in an interview with Tambari Hausa TV, noting that one of the policies he undertook upon assuming office in 2015 was to block the Nigerian borders from food importation and force people back to farm.

In his words:

“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 farm land 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.”

Speaking about the problem of flooding battling in the country, Mr Buhari, said despite the flood ravaging farming communities, Nigeria can still feed itself.

“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. Is that not an achievement?”

“We have workers who left their air-conditioned offices and went into farming, and they had bounty harvests. So, we are grateful,” Mr Buhari added.
