Nigerian Custom Service says Ban on importation of Rice has boosted Local Production

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) says the ban on the importation of rice into the country has boosted the production of Local Rice and the establishment of more local rice mills.

Alhaji Dalha Wada-Chedi, The Acting Controller of the Katsina Command, made this known on Monday, 11th of October, 2021 during a Customs’ Community Consultative Forum in Katsina State Nigeria.

"Before the closure of the borders, there were few rice mills in the country, especially in the north, but in Kano alone, we now have over 200.

“No fewer than 200 rice processing industries came into existence in Kano State alone, following the closure of the borders. This is a great achievement.

"And this rice is being processed locally here at home, it is more hygienic and healthier than those imported from other countries.

The acting controller further called on the leaders of the border communities to avoid attacking the Customs Operatives.
