President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed that Nigeria would have been in trouble if the land borders had not been closed last year.
He made this known while speaking at the fifth regular meeting with the Presidential Economic Advisory Council held on Tuesday at the State House in Abuja.

Recall that Nigeria’s land borders were closed for over a year.

President Buhari directed the Central Bank of Nigeria “must not give money to import food. Already about seven states are producing all the rice we need. We must eat what we produce.”
