Former President Muhammadu Buhari has stressed the importance of self-reliance in food production.

Speaking after attending Eid prayers with the Emir of Daura, Katsina State Dr Faruk Umar Faruk, Buhari lauded the efforts of Nigerians who have turned to farming to mitigate rising food prices and ensure national food security.

This was contained in a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu.

He appealed to citizens to continue striving for self-reliance by growing and consuming locally produced food.

He said, “I am wishing everyone a Happy Sallah. May this special festival bring joy, prosperity, and wonderful health to everyone. This is not the time to relent when we see prices going up. Let us buy what is produced in the country.”

The former president highlighted the foundational work of previous administrations in creating a prosperous and stable country, urging the youth to engage actively in nation-building and to draw inspiration from the country’s founding fathers and regional leaders.
