Buhari made the comment on Thursday, March 17, 2016, while receiving the new Bulgarian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Vesselin Blagoer Delcher in Abuja.

‘‘We must produce what we eat. We don’t have unlimited resources to continue the importation of food items that can be produced locally,” Buhari said.

“Fortunately, some Nigerians have shown foresight by building factories that process agricultural products within the country. They have created a value chain that boosts employment, protects our foreign reserves and safeguards the economy from external shocks.

“We will do all that we can to encourage others to join in the effort to achieve national self-sufficiency in food production,” Buhari added.
