Some Nigerians order pizza from London to Nigeria via British Airways'- Agriculture Minister, Audu Ogbeh claims

Nigeria's Agriculture Minster, Audu Ogbeh is currently trending on social media after he made a statement saying Nigerians order pizza from the United Kingdom with their phones.

Ogbeh who once advised Nigerians to eat less of rice and consume more potatoes made the startling revelation on Wednesday, March 27, when he appeared before the Senate committee on Agriculture.

The Minister during his presentation said some Nigerians import everything including pizza from London. He said those who order for the London pizza, make the orders in the morning, using British Airways.
“Do you know, sir, that there are Nigerians who use their cellphones to import pizza from London; they buy in London and bring it on British Airways in the morning to pick up at the airport. It is a very annoying situation and we have to move a lot faster in cutting down some of these things.” he told the lawmakers. Nigeria is a nation of importers”, adding: “Toothpick every year costs us 18 million dollars; tomato paste costs us 400 million dollars. Meanwhile, a basket of tomatoes is less than N2,000. The farmers are losing money because the processors do not have enough funds to set up factories. Two factories have started off. I am sure by the end of next year we can comfortably tell the importers of tomato paste to stop, he added. 
Not sure if this really happens but we won't mind eating London pizza in Lagos. Watch the video below:
