The federal government of Nigeria on Thursday, September 3, announced the release of 30,000 tons of maize from the national reserves, to animal feed producers to curb the current high cost of poultry production.

This was made known in a thread of tweets on the official Twitter page of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday.

President Buhari in the tweet said the government is doing everything possible in its power to bring down the price of food items across the country. He gave his assurance to Nigerians that the challenge of high food prices in the country will soon be a thing of the past.

The tweet reads; “To ease the current high cost of poultry production, I have approved the release of 30,000 tons of maize from the national reserves, to animal feed producers.”

We are very mindful of the challenge of high food prices, at a time when the economy is already in a slowdown caused by the global coronavirus situation, and are doing everything in our power to bring down the prices of food items across the country.”

Let me assure Nigerians that this situation of spiralling food prices will be a transient one.”

“We are also engaging with food producers associations and groups to tackle the issue of exploitative behaviour by middlemen and other actors, which is one of the factors responsible for the high food prices being experienced.”
