Federal Government to lift ban on rice importation - Muhideen Kasali

Prophet, Muhideen Kasali A cleric, Speaking to reporters at the end of a monthly night vigil held by Hours of Mercy Prayer Ministry, Worldwide, Ibadan Kasali said God specifically chose President Buhari to defeat the Boko Haram, expose and tackle corruption and lay a good economic foundation for the country. He has also called on the Federal Government to, as a matter of urgency, lift ban on the importation of rice, to alleviate the plight of the poor masses whose main diet is rice.

He urged the government to encourage and assist the willing farmers to meet local food supplies and export, to boost the nation’s foreign exchange. He said only agriculture can save Nigeria’s economy now and in future. According to him, but for Buhari’s emergence as president, the Boko Haram would have extended its operations to all parts of the country. So also was the issue of corruption.

Prophet, Muhideen Kasali added that the president had good intention for Nigeria and has made an indelible print on the sand of time within the last two years of administration.

Kasali noted that since the ban, government has not been able to produce enough rice locally to meet the people’s demand and the reasonable thing to do, is to lift the ban on rice and allow importation of the commodity, and no customs officers to go to the markets or on the high ways to seize rice.
