Former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has pleaded to Nigerians to place their trust on the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, saying his party is ready to fix food crisis.
Atiku made this known on Friday while reacting to looming food crisis in Nigeria.
Appealing to Nigerians, Atiku said his party is ready to rescue the nation saying “let us fix looming food crisis before it becomes a calamity.
“The warning given by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations on Wednesday, July 29, 2021, of a looming acute food crisis in Northern Nigeria should not be ignored.
“That dire warning should be seen and heard as a whistleblowing moment that ought to draw the focus of the Federal Government, being that Northern Nigeria is the food basket of the nation, and any famine there will have a national impact on the rest of the country and cross border impacts in the West African sub-region.
“The laissez-faire approach taken by the Federal Government to this most important issue is regrettable. Food security is a vital part of national security, and where this issue is not resolved, the resultant crisis may unsettle the nation and her immediate neighbours.
“Now is the time to proffer solutions, so that our countrymen and women do not starve in a land with so much prospective abundance” he said.
