The minister, who said that Nigeria being the largest producer of cassava in the world have no business importing garri from India lamented the great appetite Nigerians have for foreign goods.

“Whoever buys that kind of product have his or herself to blame, I have not seen, but I have heard of it. Nigerians are little too ready to buy anything imported, we bring in apples, some of it preserved in ethanol, not healthy for our consumption, but as for importation of garri, we produce more cassava than India, why are we importing garri?

“Why will anybody import garri from India, there has never been short supply of garri in the country, this is one of the reasons why there is pressure on the Naira, everybody is looking for dollars on the street to bring in the most ridiculous items, people sit here and by phone order pizza in London and it arrive by British Airways in the morning, what kind of people are we?, Ogbeh told the paper.
