Nigerians Facing Hunger Due To Insecurity And COVID 19

The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations says over 12 million Nigerians are faced with hunger due to insecurity and the COVID-19 pandemic..

FAO Communication Officer, David Tsokar, said this in a statement issued on Friday in Abuja.
According to Tsokar, the United Nations food security and nutrition analysis conducted in 20 states in October shows that insecurity and COVID-19 has forced 12 million Nigerians into hunger.
He said that about 19 per cent of affected households are in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States because of the ongoing insecurity in the north-east and the lingering economic impact of COVID-19.

      Bad leadership is the main one

    2. How is your state governor encouraging agriculture. In real terms what has he done to better the lives of your people

  2. They will learn in an hard way...Time and Tides

  3. I was in the market last Friday, was shocked when the sellers were discussing the increase in prices on daily basis. That the cost of production is very high hence there will be many fake and low quality products in circulation this season.

  4. Which one is and covid19 that one is the least of our problems, the main ish is hunger

  5. Anybody with small Backyard should be planting produce. Self sustenance is the way forward now.

  6. things are really expensive now, No Christmas dress this year make person chop bellefull first

  7. It is sad that while the masses cannot feed well, the politicians and their cronies and band of looters were depositing $1m to $5m for their nth property (to murder poor construction workers) from the people’s money.

    However, some in the diaspora who get requests or demands from every angle face inflation as well. Here is the situation in the US. The difference is the social safety net that has been embezzled in Nigeria. Maybe people should go and do a sit-in at Alausa or your state governor’s office with hungry kids. Sitting by the route to PMB’s office with hungry kids may make them they DO their jobs!

    “U.S. inflation hit a three-decade high in October, fueled by strong consumer demand and shortages of goods amid a snarled supply chain. The consumer-price index shot to 6.2% from a year earlier — the biggest increase since 1990, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said. Meanwhile, the price of gas, per The Wall Street Journal, rose almost 50% from the same month a year ago. Adding to the acceleration in price increases last month was a 4.8% bump in energy prices”
