Why Nigerians Should Be Concerned About the State of Emergency on Food Security

The declaration of a state of emergency on food security by President Bola Tinubu is seen as a positive move by experts in the field. Kabiru Adamu, the Executive Director of Beacon Security Consulting Agency, believes that this shows the President listens to the people. He emphasizes that food security is crucial for the survival of the nation and that the ability of the average person to afford food is key to reducing the threat of recruitment by disgruntled groups within communities.

In agreement with Adamu, economist Johnson Chukwu highlights that the President now has the power to intervene in areas such as food production, distribution, and availability. However, he stresses that it is important to address the root causes of food insecurity in Nigeria, pointing out that issues such as insurgency, banditry, and conflicts between herders and settlers need to be tackled effectively.

  1. Addressing the Insurgency: Chukwu emphasizes that fighting insurgency in the Northeast is crucial for ensuring food security in the country.
  2. Tackling Banditry: The President needs to deal with the banditry issues in the Northwest, which also affect the availability of food.
  3. Resolving Herder-Settler Conflict: The herder-settler conflict in the North-Central region also contributes to food insecurity and needs to be addressed.

Chukwu further criticizes the impact of monetary interventions from banks on the agriculture sector, stating that production must be improved to drive down inflation. He believes that if food inflation is reduced to single digits, it will have a positive effect on overall inflation in the country.
