President Bola Tinubu said his government will do everything possible to expand food production and become a net exporter amid rising hunger and hardship in Nigeria.

Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday after a delegation from the Global Tijaniyya Movement, led by Khalifa Muhammad Mahe Niass, visited Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The President said his administration would support plans and efforts to give ease and assistance to Hajj pilgrims.

He emphasised the importance of spiritual endeavours in nation-building, underscoring his administration’s commitment to supporting religious activities.

He highlighted the need for collaboration between political and spiritual leaders to advance the nation’s interests and promote unity among the people.

On agriculture, the President outlined plans to bolster agricultural productivity through various initiatives, including expanding farmlands, providing low-interest loans to farmers, and significant investments in irrigation infrastructure.

“We are dedicated to equipping hospitals with modern equipment, providing healthcare professionals with training, and ensuring social welfare for every citizen, including comprehensive health insurance coverage.

“Nigeria will become a net exporter of food. We are bringing thousands of tractors. Food production will be greatly expanded through aggressive mechanisation. We must be productive as a people. That is the Sunnah and the principles I grew up understanding,” he said.

Sheikh Mahe Niass, the Khalifa of Tijaniyya, speaking on behalf of the delegation, commended Tinubu for his unwavering commitment to Nigeria’s peace, progress, and stability.

He expressed confidence in the President’s leadership and conveyed the emotional support and prayers of the Global Tijaniyya Movement members to the Nigerian leader.
