Buhari Didn’t Ban Food Imports – Presidency

The Presidency has denied that the Federal Government had placed restrictions or an outright ban on importation of food items into the Country.

In a statement by the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, the presidency said President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent disclosure that the Central Bank of Nigeria had been asked to stop providing foreign exchange to food importers did not imply a ban on food importation by the government.

Mr. Shehu explained that importers could still source forex from non-governmental financial institutions and pay the relevant custom duties to Government.
