The policies of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government are turning Nigeria into a better country, Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi state has declared.
The governor, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said this when he visited a rice mill that is privately owned.
The rice mill, according to the report, is owned by Alhaji Sahabi Lolo in Kamba, a businessman.
It was learnt that Bagudu was accompanied by his Jigawa counterpart, Muhammed Badaru.

The governor said he was excited that the policies of the Buhari-led administration were putting the country on a more formidable economic footing.
He said the government’s focus on the investment drive in the area of rice production in the last few years had started yielding positive results.
”What you saw here today is one of the so many that have come-up in the last few years under president Muhammad Buhari’s robust administration.
“Buhari coined the adage, let’s grow what we can eat and let’s eat what we grow and now we are seeing Nigerians processing what we produce,” he said.
Bagudu pointed out that even with the recent flooding in many areas, the price of food has started nosediving.
Bagudu also expressed delight that more people were hugely investing in the agricultural sector.
”Private money from the small scale farmer, to the small scale fisherman and animal husbandry, people are putting more money into agriculture,” he said.
Bagudu commended the businessman for trusting the government of Buhari and its various policies resulting in the rice mill.

According to a tweet by Lauretta Onochie, President Buhari’s special assistant on new media, the price of the commodity was slashed from N5500 to N5000.
