The president noted that floods had caused large-scale destruction to agricultural farmlands, thereby “impacting negatively on our efforts to boost local production in line with our policy to drastically reduce food importation. The president also noted that the current insecurity in the country has produced severe and adverse effects on agriculture because farmers are prevented from accessing their farms by bandits and terrorists.

He, however, restated the determination of his administration to create a just, harmonious and prosperous country in which the safety of life and property is assured. While reflecting on current challenges facing the country, the president stated that the “COVID-19 pandemic had taken a heavy toll on the economies of all countries, including Nigeria.”
