It was gathered yesterday that the decision was informed by the need to bring down the cost of food items which have hit the roof, making life unbearable for Nigerians.

The listed food items which includes maize, wheat, husked brown rice, and cowpeas, would enjoy a 150-day duty-free import window.
The Federal Government said it has recognised the fact that the prices of food items have over the past several months increased in all parts of the country, making life difficult for the people.
