The Deputy Prime Minister of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Vuong Dinh Hue, begged the APC led Administration to allow Vietnam to import rice in Nigeria.
He made the appeal in Abuja when he led a five-man delegation to meet the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee. He said the delegation would also meet Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to present similar demands.
Reacting to it, Oshiomhole said Nigeria would not accept such demand from Vietnam, advising the country to rather secure land and invest in rice production in Nigeria. He said Nigeria would no longer be a dumping ground for unwanted chemicals and spoilt products among others, stressing that Nigeria’s border would remain closed until neighbouring countries learn to respect the rule of fair trade.
