Nigeria Custom planning to allow rice importation through the land borders

Nigerian Customs Service has made the decision to lift the ban on importation of rice through the land borders.

National Rice Millers Association of Nigeria feels that if the customs succeeded in its decision, it would destroy Nigeria’s rice value chain attained by the previous administration.

As per association this will completely kill the rice value chain and everything concerning rice production will stop; customs does not have the right to make such decision. Nigeria government to be focused and have the political will to make sure Nigeria becomes self sufficient in rice production.
