BUHARI ORDERS RELEASE OF 40000MT FOR EASTER, SALLAH

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the immediate release of 40,000 metric tons of assorted grains from the Strategic Grains Reserve, to assist less-privileged Nigerians to celebrate the forthcoming Easter and Sallah festivities.

This was made known by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Muhammed Mahmood, while briefing State House Correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday.

According to him, “ this is to cushion the effect of some of the issues we are facing with high prices of commodities across the country and also to cushion these festivities; Ramadan, Easter, Salah so that there will be a little cushion for the people during these festivities.”

Mahmood, who said he was summoned by the president and directed to disburse the commodities to the affected people, said that 12,000 out of the 40,000 approved tons will be allocated to the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development by the ministry for distribution to internally-displaced persons across the country.

The minister revealed that the same process used during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, to distribute 70,000 metric tons of assorted food items across some states and the Federal Capital Territory would be used in distributing the grains.
