President Tinubu Vows Food Self-Sufficiency for Nigeria at Bida-Minna Road Groundbreaking

President Bola Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has pledged to achieve self-sufficiency in food production for Nigeria before the end of his tenure. This ambitious goal was articulated during the groundbreaking ceremony of the 84km, N169.7 billion Bida-Minna Road project in Kakakpagi, Katch Local Government Area.

“Ensuring Nigeria can feed itself is not just a matter of national pride but a necessity,” President Tinubu stated, emphasizing the importance of agricultural independence. “Before I leave office, Nigeria will not only be self-reliant in food production but also on the path to becoming a net exporter of agricultural products.”

The ceremony, which marked the commencement of the significant road construction, was also a platform for the President to reiterate his administration’s commitment to infrastructural development as a means to bolster economic growth and development.

The President, who was represented by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, highlighted the road’s potential to enhance connectivity, reduce travel time, and facilitate the swift movement of goods and services. “Road construction will save lives and create avenues for greater economic development,” he added.

Governor Umaru Bago of Niger State, in his remarks, expressed that the Bida-Minna Road project is a fulfillment of his administration’s promise to the people. “This project is not just a road; it’s an economic lifeline for our state and the nation,” Governor Bago said.

The groundbreaking event was attended by dignitaries, including the Etsu Nupe, Alh. Dr. Yahaya Abubakar, and other high-ranking officials, signaling a collective effort towards Nigeria’s development goals.

With this initiative, President Tinubu’s administration takes a step forward in addressing the dual challenges of food security and infrastructural development, setting a precedent for future governance.
