It's a good decision to ban foreign importation of food sticks and other things but for us to start patronizing our own, the federal government needs to aide those producing companies for quality production.

According to former minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, described the President Buhari as an "out-of-touch" leader with the implementation of restriction on the foreign reserve on importation. The President believes that the farmers and agricultural sector has grown exceedingly to the extent of exporting to the U.S, whereas reverse is the case.

In line with this, the President Buhari states that the foreign reserve should be conserved and utilized strictly for diversification of the economy.

What are your thoughts on this? Would this policy implementation boost the economy or not

I think the president needs to support start up farmers with reasonable credit facilities. People are willing to venture into livestock or crop production but no reasonable credit facility for start ups exists especially for nigerians in south-south and south-eastern parts of the country. This is over 210 million people we are talking about and for decisions like this to be sustainable, there have to be more than enough farmers to feed this country. The land is massive the farmers are few. Thank you.

The president's diversification agenda is a good one, as a matter of fact its quite commendable and allocating the foreign reserve to be used as diversification of the economy is good also however, how ready is the agricultural sector of the country? Diversification agenda is not what you just wake up to implement. The other sectors into where you are seeking diversification of the economy should be strong, viable and balanced else the agenda will prove futile

Proper planning is key.

The president order on food importation is good and am glad with it,,, Once we reduce importation of foods and consume our own grown foods this will boost economic growth .. 

The bad effect that import food did to us is not small due to chemical to preserve the import  foods which cause disease to our body system, I support the President order on importation of foods. 

God bless Nigeria.

Before placing a ban he didn't check on the farmers. Most of the items produced here are not even enough to feed half of the population...importation is a source of employment and income to alot of people... Thousands just lost their jobs.

We can't just place a ban with no substitute at hand. Such import substitution policies are implemented to aid and support domestic industries that are coming up. But are these industries even available, he just believes that agriculture is up to, but does he know? Does he know the state of the country? This economy is dominated by primary production and lagging far behind in secondary production. So what is it you want to be exporting, raw tomatoes and raw groundnuts? 

we need to do more please, if we are really ready to compete with foreign countries and bam importation. Because you can't ban importation and expect people to buy low quality things, some prefer to spend good money to buy high quality items so this government should please make it so.

It is pitiable that we hate telling ourselves the truth. Our pursuit of foreign culture and practices is making us forget our God-given heritage. Agriculture remains one of Nigeria's best natural source of resources, besides crude oil, which can conveniently sustain our economy. If a temporary or a permanent hold could be placed on importation, and the government too is ready to actively support the expansion of Agriculture in Nigeria through financial assistance to the actual beneficiaries, enough energy would be exerted on it by farmers, youths especially and..., the rest would be history

the president is right in his discission, because we are busy looking for white collar job while there is land to tiles and cultivate food on it,if we can go back to the early 90s where there is no unemployment youth every body is working hard,we are Africans are not lazy but hard working, but white collar job have render us useless and jobless, know one is hard working again. Mr President is right on that point

This going to be very devastating if it comes into play. Our country's 50% source of survival has been from foreign goods. If he's going to implement this, he should focus on building and repairing our own pillars of survival i.e. Nigerian industries and infrastructure. When these have been tackled, then we can consider reducing the rate of importation.
