FG must ban 85℅ importation – Ex-envoy Adejare

The immediate past Nigeria’s Ambassador to Mexico, Adejare Bello, has urged federal government (FG)to ban 85 percent importation practice, warning that it is dangerous for the future of the country.

Bello, who is the former speaker of Osun Assembly, made this known during a reception organised his party and loyalists after his sojourn in Mexico.

He noted that the importation is ten times of what Nigeria exports, saying “if the country fails to ban 85 percent of its importation, the future of the country is glooming.

He boasted that Nigeria will overcome its problems after two years of President Bola Tinubu in government, adding that the president needs prayer and support from the people to achieve his objectives.

Adejare: “Nigeria is battered, we all know it but we have to give him a kind of synergy, work together, and pray for him. Where there is a trade imbalance in Nigeria against other continents is because what we bring in is almost times ten what we send out. What that means is that we have to reduce our demand for imports.

“Importation must be banned by 85 percent of what we bring in as of today. If we don’t do it, tomorrow of Nigeria is very gloomy and we should not allow it to run murky.”

Bello speaking on the performance of Governor Ademola Adeleke who hails from his town, wished him but said “ Adeleke’s tenure remains less than three years so he may not have the opportunity to spend another time. APC is a party to watch out for in 2026. APC is coming back to power, you can be rest assured.”
