Audu Ogbeh, Nigeria’s Minister of Agriculture has disclosed to the Senate committee on Agriculture yesterday, March 27th that some Nigerians import everything including pizza from London.

He made this known while making his presentation to the lawmakers, he said:00

“Do you know, sir, that there are Nigerians who use their cellphones to import pizza from London; they buy in London and bring it on British Airways in the morning to pick up at the airport. It is a very annoying situation and we have to move a lot faster in cutting down some of these things.” he told the lawmakers

Speaking further, the Minister said

”Nigeria is a nation of importers”, adding: “Toothpick every year costs us 18 million dollars; tomato paste costs us 400 million dollars. Meanwhile, a basket of tomatoes is less than N2,000. The farmers are losing money because the processors do not have enough funds to set up factories. Two factories have started off. I am sure by the end of next year we can comfortably tell the importers of tomato paste to stop.”
