 “We must rid ourselves of eating foreign rice that has being stored for over 9 years in Thailand, Vietnam and India. Nigerian rice is fresh and healthier.”
“What we have done with this program so far is to create jobs through farming, especially for the unemployed youths. Nigerian youths must wake up, dust themselves up and join this worthy campaign.”

Mr. Isaac encouraging youths to begin farming said “Remember that the status of our farmers is now better due to the support they are receiving as a result of government’s policy. Our currency is weak because we engaged in needless importation of all kinds of food stuffs, including tooth picks; the government is determined to stop this.”
