Rice Millers Advise Gambari on Food Sufficiency and Security
Rice Millers Association of Nigeria – RIMAN congratulates Ambassador Ibrahim Agboola Gambari over his appointment as the new Chief of Staff to Mr. President.
RIMAN wish to call on the new Chief of Staff to use his international exposure and experience in diplomacy to ensure that Nigeria achieves international food sufficiency and security, particularly as it relates to rice value chain in the Milling Sector.
RIMAN is ready to collaborate with the new Chief of Staff to ensure that through our milling efforts, milled rice is supplied cheaply for the consumption of Nigerians.
RIMAN therefore calls on the new Chief of Staff to deal with fairness, all Memos sent for Mr. President’s attention on Rice Milling in the country, as against what was being practiced in the past, were RIMAN Memos meant for the attention of Mr. President are not worked upon, summarized or acknowledged for the progress of smaller and medium Rice Millers in Nigeria because of personal or selfish interest.
RIMAN therefore welcome Professor Gambari’s appointment and hope that he will do better in his working relationship with small and medium Rice Millers in Nigeria in their efforts in adding to National Food Security through the Rice Value Chain programme of the Nigerian government in the rice sector.
RIMAN also urge all Nigerians to support and collaborate with Professor Gambari as Chief of Staff so that he will work for Mr. President without distraction and for the development of our country in general, particularly in the agriculture and Rice Milling sectors of our economy.
Finally, RIMAN wishes Professor Gambari God’s guidance, fruitful and a very successful tenure in office.
