SHOCKING ALERT!!! Buhari’s Government Is Importing Poison Into The Country – Top APC Governor Raises Alarm

The Chairman, Presidential Taskforce on Rice and Wheat Production, Governor Abubakar Bagudu, has condemned the continuous importation of rice into the country, describing it as importation of poison.

Recall, that Abubakar Bagudu, is also the Governor of Kebbi State.

Reacting to the importation of rice into the country up till this moment, the Governor told Journalists on Sunday, in Birnin-Kebbi, that the imported rice auctioned by different countries, was no longer good for human consumption.

The Chairman, who expressed regret over citizens’ patronage of foreign rice, said imported rice usually contained preservatives, which are poisonous to the human body.

The Governor noted that, Thailand in April 2017, auctioned 1.62 million tonnes of rice at about $140 per tonne, whereas the market price of it was $700 per tonne. His words: “Countries, particularly Thailand, India, China and Vietnam, buy a lot of paddy from their farmers and keep in storage sometimes, as long as nine years so that by so doing, they are supporting their farmers.

“A country like Thailand, for example, may have eight million tonnes of rice in storage; so occasionally, they will auction the ones that are almost going bad that is, the one that is not fit for human consumption.

“They sell the paddy as low as 20 percent less than the international market price.

“Those that import rice into Nigeria will go and buy the paddy, and clean them up.”
