Osun state governor, Rauf Aregbesola, appeals to Nigerians to stop eating imported rice

Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state yesterday appealed to Nigerians to stop eating imported rice and go back to eating indigenous ones such as Ofada rice and others. Aregbesola made the call while speaking at an event to mark the 2016 International Day for Eradication of Poverty in the state yesterday.
“Rice was not a staple food in Nigeria before 1980. Ofada rice was the only rice eaten during festivities. We should return to the time when we were eating indigenous rice. We have cassava, plantain, beans and yam. We should return to the time when we were eating our indigenous foods"he said
