Nigeria yet to attain Self-sufficiency in Rice production – Yemi Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has stated that the country is yet to attain self-sufficiency in rice production. He made this known while speaking at the 4th National Discourse organized in Lagos by The Companion, an association of Muslim Men in Business and the Professions themed ‘Food Security: Unleashing Nigeria’s Natural Potential for self Sufficiency’.

According to Osinbajo, the government used to import $5 million of rice every day, although local rice is enhancing the economy, however it is still more expensive than imported rice.

He also said We are still at the point where we can do so much better and Once we are able to mill our rice, then we can compete with imported rice in terms of pricing.
