Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State has said that the bumper harvest recorded this farming season will help stabilise the price of rice in Nigerian markets.

Bagudu, who is the Chairman Presidential Taskforce on Rice and Wheat Production in the country, made the statement on Monday in Argungu Local Government Area of the state while interacting with rice farmers in the area.

“The bumper harvest the rice farmers have recorded this rainy season will bring down the price of locally-produced rice to curtail smuggling of foreign rice into the country and make it affordable for the common man,” he said.

“Already youths have been trained on the operation of the machines and they will impart such skill to rice farmers in the 21 Local Government Areas of the state,” Bagudu said.

One of the farmers, Abubakar Usman, told the governor that they had recorded bumper harvest this year and would sustain the tempo in coming seasons.
