World Food Day: I Will Tackle Insecurity As My First Priority In Government – Peter Obi

In commemoration of the 2022 World Food Day, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has vowed to tackle insecurity as his first priority in government, while ensuring that the vast lands littered across the nation, especially in the North, are well invested in, for massive food production.

Obi stated in a series of tweets on his verified Twitter account, “High level of insecurity and the apparent neglect of the agricultural sector, among other factors like the flooding of farmlands are responsible for the prevalent soaring food inflation that is biting hard on the country today.

“While insecurity has kept farmers away from their farmlands, the lack of investment in agriculture has caused the sector to continue to perform poorly. In pursuance of our vision of moving the country from consumption to production.

This year’s theme is LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND. World Food Day is observed on October 16 each year to raise awareness of world hunger. World Food Day aims to increase awareness of world hunger and poverty.
