The Federal Government says it would soon ban the importation of fish and milk into the country.
Minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Sabo Nanono disclosed this at the official commissioning of the Agribusiness incubation center (AIC) at Federal University Dutse, in Jigawa State.
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 which 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 said the Federal Government has commenced small scale milk processing centers to mitigate the importation of milk into the country.
“We have over seven of these centers and we are going to do more in the country, we also opened one in Dawakin- Kudu last year and the center alone is galvanizing over 12 thousand Fulani cattle rearers in the area” Nanono noted.
“If we take fish, there are so many fish infrastructures also in this country abandoned and not utilized”
The minister, in spite of that, said the Federal Government is also working to revive them and also create the new ones.
