Nigeria may face famine in January, Presidency warns

Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba yesterday warned that Nigeria could face famine in January if drastic steps are not taken now.‎ Garba who gave the warning when he spoke at a radio station in kano yesterday, said Nigerian farmers are exporting most of their food products instead of making it readily available for consumption in Nigeria.


"Huge demand for our grains in the global market is creating an excellent environment for the mindless export of Nigerian grains across our borders and unless this is curtailed, Nigerian markets will be bereft of food by January next year. ‎ Over the past year, Providence has blessed Nigeria with a bountiful harvest of grains, more than enough to feed the country and to export to other countries. At present, there is a high demand for grains from Nigeria, from African countries as distant as Libya and Algeria, and from places as far away as Brazil. However, the ministry of agriculture has raised concerns about a massive rate of exportation, which could lead to a shortage of grains in Nigeria by January. President Muhammadu Buhari is not in any way opposed to or intent on tampering with that. On the other hand, exporters also have a moral obligation to make their produce available to Nigerians who live within our country’s borders, to ensure that our citizens have access to food” he said. Garba said that the ministry of agriculture estimated that no fewer than 500 trucks laden with grain leave Nigerian markets every week, headed for countries outside Nigerian borders. “The major markets involved in this exportation are: the Dawanau market in Kano, Naigatari in Jigawa, Bama in Borno, and Ilela in Sokoto, as well as three other main markets in Kebbi State,” he said.

Meaningless statement from the Presidency, we need the names of the items in question and not the market locations.

Even with itd huge budget the ministry of agric could not create huge plantations in every state nor convert abundant waste to manure. So what does it really do to justify the huge budget? Talking? Or planning for cows only?

Desperation situations, call for desperate measures.
Government should try with the cooperation of Nigerians, to stop irrational exports that might come back to hunt us. Lets have enough for local consumption before exporting.

Government needs to understand that policy formation is their responsibility and not that of the citizens. They are the ones to come up with ideas and policy that will drive the economy. newshandle.com. They need to fix the needed amenities that will aid the growth and expansion of businesses in the country.

They shouldn't be warning Nigerian's of the imminent suffering ahead, but rather should come up with ideas and policies that will challenge its citizens to be creative and supportive.

Ain't we already in the famine that started with the APC regime. Price of everything went up just like it did in the time of Joseph in Egypt. But one thing I am certain of is that the Lord knows those that are his and will rescue us from this famine the same way He did for the children of Israel.
