Dec 1st, 2011 – I’ll Continue To Eat Cassava Bread Until I Leave The State House – Jonathan

This is one of a kind news emerging from the state house, President Goodluck Jonathan as seen above is tasting cassava bread before the meeting of the Federal Executive Council.

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday declared that until he leaves the Presidential seat, he will continue to eat bread made from cassava flour. Speaking at the commencement of the Federal Executive Council meeting yesterday, President Goodluck Jonathan said that he has been eating Cassava bread for the past one week.

“I have been eating it since this past one week. I think it is proper for us in council to formally present this bread to Nigerians. I will continue to eat only this bread until I leave the  State House. We must encourage what we have.”

Few weeks ago, the federal government said it had started plans that will enable it to save about N315 billion from the importation of wheat, by subsidising it with cassava, which is largely produced in Nigeria.

As part of showing government support for the idea of Cassava Bread, President Goodluck Jonathan tore a sample bread and handed a piece to his Vice president, Nnamadi Sambo for tasting.

Mr President, Nigeria Needs Revolution & Not Cassava Bread!

    It is PR for the president. In his bedroom, he would not cassava bread. It is like saying you prefer to eat Ofada rice with stones when you could eat Uncle Ben’s rice.

    Cassava bread would not be good for people with ailments like diabetes. Does the Federal Government want to kill Nigerians off slowly… We eat enough starchy foods already. We need constant electricity not Oluwole bread.
