Instead, what the President has done is to ensure adequate food security in the country by ensuring an independent agricultural and industrial sector of its own is on the move.

He further said the stand of the government is that those importing food products must pass through the right focus and not deviate from letting the government have its own benefit. Provided this is not their aim; they are free to do whatever they wish.
