According to reports, the governor has taken foreign rice out from his menu for the last six months reports say.
“We cannot be blessed with the kind of arable land we have in the North and the fertile rainforest in the South and still be dependent as a country on foreign food,” he reportedly declared.
Ikpeazu said the reason for the boycott is to demonstrate that Nigeria, with her rich agricultural potentials, has the capacity for self-sufficiency in food production.
He said as a way to tackle the prevailing economic glut occasioned by the global oil slide, Nigeria must develop a new policy that will discourage importation of foreign foods and encourage the cultivation and eating of local foods, stressing that this is time for us to value the richness of our local menu.
