Gov. Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State says President Muhammadu Buhari’s policies have began to yield the desired results in the country.

The governor made this known during a visit to a private rice mill, owned by a business mogul, Alhaji Sahabi Lolo in Kamba, Dandi Local Government Area(LGA )of the state on Sunday.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Bagudu was accompanied by Gov. Muhammed Badaru of Jigawa on the visit.

He expressed delight that the policies of the administration were putting the country on a more formidable economic footing.

According to Bagudu, the investment derive of the president in the rice value chain in the last few years is also bearing fruits on the economy.

”What you saw here today is one of the so many that have come-up in the last few years under president Muhammad Buhari’s robust administration.

“Buhari coined the adage, let’s grow what we can eat and let’s eat what we grow and now we are seeing Nigerians processing what we produce,” he said.

He pointed out that even with the recent flooding in many areas, the price of food has started nosediving.

Bagudu also expressed delight that more people were hugely investing  in the agricultural sector.

”Private money from the small scale farmer, to the small scale fisherman and animal husbandry, people are putting more money into agriculture,” he said.

The governor commended Lolo for believing in the policies put in place by the Buhari’s administration.

He said that by establishing the rice mill in Kamba, Lolo has helped in boosting the economy of the state.

He also discribed Badaru, as someone who is  in the forefront of industrialising his state – Jigawa.

“He is a man with extensive contact and knowledge in different countries of the world.”

Earlier, Badaru said he was in Kamba to inspect the ricemill, which has the capacity of producing 160 tonnes of paddy, per day to encourage private investment as one of the policy thrust of the Buhari administration.
