President Bola Tinubu, on Sunday, said his administration was keen to make Nigeria self-sufficient in food production and become a net exporter of agricultural products through what he called “aggressive mechanisation.”

He affirmed his administration’s support to give ease and succour to the 2024 Hajj pilgrims.

“Nigeria will become a net exporter of food through aggressive mechanisation,” Tinubu told a delegation from the Global Tijaniyya Movement, led by Khalifa Muhammad Mahe Niass, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, on Sunday.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, Tinubu emphasised the importance of spiritual endeavours in nation-building, vowing to support religious activities

The statement was titled, ‘President Tinubu: We are determined to achieve food sufficiency for Nigeria.’

On Agriculture, he said, “Nigeria will become a net exporter of food. We are bringing thousands of tractors. Food production will be greatly expanded through aggressive mechanisation. We must be productive as a people. That is the Sunnah and the principles I grew up understanding.”

He also outlined plans to bolster agricultural productivity through various initiatives, including the expansion of farmlands, the provision of low-interest loans to farmers, and significant investments in irrigation infrastructure
