The Federal Government has raised the alarm that rice being imported into the country is not good for human consumption.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, during a media briefing in Oro, Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State on Tuesday, also said the imported rice was meant to feed cattle in their countries of origin.
According to him, imported rice is cheaper than locally produced ones, because it is being dumped in Nigeria.
He advised Nigerians to consume locally produced rice, which he noted was healthy and fresh. Mohammed stated that the Federal Government was making concerted efforts to continue to support rice farmers in the country to boost their production.
