The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, held meeting with national food security council.
He said the “food security remains at the forefront of our administration’s agenda. I chaired a Meeting of the National Food Security Council today, where we noted the devastating impact of recent floods on the progress we’ve made so far. Our condolences go to the victims and their families.
“The FG are integrating rural communities to the formal economy by extending access to credit and inputs to rural farmers, and building feeder roads. We have also invested in building our strategic grain reserves in recent years.
We are grateful to all our farmers for their hard work. We will continue to do everything to support them, including those impacted by the recent flooding disaster. Already, we are working to ensure the losses from this wet season are replaced in the coming dry planting season.
