He tweeted;

 

I am restating it that nobody importing food or fertilizer should be given foreign exchange from the Central Bank. We will not pay a kobo of our foreign reserves to import food or fertilizer. We will instead empower local farmers and producers.

We have a lot of able-bodied young people willing to work, and agriculture is the answer
