The importation of fish and milk into the country will soon be banned by the federal government.
During the official commissioning of the Agribusiness incubation center (AIC) at Federal University Dutse, in Jigawa State, Sabo Nanono, the Minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources revealed this.
Nanono said the Federal Government will further look critically on all food importation into the country.
The Minister explained that Nigeria is blessed with so many resources and opportunities, stressing that there is nothing that is imported that is not produced in the country.
” We will look critically into the importation of any food into the country because we all have it, Nigeria is a country where we eat what we produce and produce what we eat” he stated.
He said Nigeria has about 25m cows in the country but the only problem the country has is how to get the milk.
He added that the Federal Government has commenced small scale milk processing centers to mitigate the importation of milk into the country.
