The need to urgently amend the country's constitution to ensure the right to food and food security in the country cannot be overestimated.
According to the President of the Farm and Infrastructure Foundation of Professor Gbolagade Ayuola, the human right to food is inviolable and should not be considered as people's need.
Professor Ayula recently spoke at a meeting of southern southern farmers gathered in Asab, stating that the right to life, enshrined in the constitution, cannot exist without the prior right to food.
Speaking about the United Nations World Food Program, the FIF President noted that hunger threatens 20 million people in four countries, including Nigeria, stressing that the bill on the right to food, if adopted by law, will help ensure that the government prioritizes food security.
Professor Iola said that everyone should have the right to food, which should be respected, protected and guaranteed by the state, adding that no one should be deprived under any circumstances.
Stakeholders, including women, were widely spoken, asking the federal government for a clear food security policy to end hunger on earth, even if shepherd activity was considered a deprivation of the right to food.
