Nigeria’s food security efforts under threat, says FAO


The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) expressed concern that the increasing incidence of floods, conflicts, and climate change are obstacles to the efforts of the federal government to achieve zero hunger by 2030.

The representative of the FAO country Sufyan Koroma, who spoke about this at a rally on World Food Day in 2018 on Tuesday in Abuja, stressed the need to intensify the country's efforts to achieve its goals in the area of ​​food security.

Koroma stressed that the government should improve its ability to manage floods, conflicts, diseases and pests to meet its food needs.

“In view of what we have been doing in crop and livestock production to contribute to zero hunger, Nigeria should be free from hunger by 2030, but how can we control animal and pest diseases?”
