We should be able to stop importation of rice by 2016 – GEJ

GEJIt has been estimated by President Goodluck Jonathan that, with the ongoing revolution in the agriculture sector in the country, Nigeria will stop importation of rice in 2016.

President Jonathan made this known at the Nigeria Summit 2013, organised by the Economist in Lagos, on Tuesday. He stated among other things that the Federal Government was committed to creating an enabling environment for the private sector to thrive, stating that lots of activities were being achieved in rice, cassava and sugar production: “Our aim is to go back to agriculture not only to export raw materials but to process and add value. We are committed to creating job,” he said.

The president also noted that the government was aggressively addressing the problem of infrastructure in the country, stating that there were improvements in various sectors of the economy. Specifically, the president said power supply had improved tremendously, assuring that at the end of the privatisation process in the power sector, Nigerians would experience stable power supply.

  3. He isn’t even tired of making senseless and empty promises. It’s a shame dat some sound minded governors are doing far more better dan u. Wat have u done to encouraged the local farmers who works under the hot sun and heavy rain? Even if u have any plan at all to finance agriculture, is it not in the hands of ur political associates and cohort dat u buried the money? So dat they will swallow the money as usual and keep us empty handed. Imagine where govt is using the public funds to settle and compensates his political associates and his fellow satanic worshippers while the people are perishing in hunger and joblessness! See who is creating more jobs, where so many are been disengaged from the little ones they are managing. God punish u there and ur so called job creation.
