...Insists border closure may remain permanent unless...


Okwe Obi, Abuja

The Federal Government seems unperturbed by the widespread condemnation of the current border closure, as it has categorically stated that the exercise will remain until neighbouring countries respect the laws of Nigeria against food smuggling.

This is even as he ruled out hunger issues affecting Nigerians, claiming that Nigeria is food sufficient.

On August 20, 2019, Nigeria closed her borders in four geopolitical zones across the country: South-South, South-West, North-Central and North-West.

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Sabo Nanono, who spoke at a press briefing to mark the 2019 World Food Day, in Abuja, argued that it was laughable when Nigerians cry of hunger, because, according to him, they do not know what hunger is all about.

According to him, the problem of overweight or obesity could be attributed to the lack of exercise and not lack of the intake of a balanced diet.

“I think so long as these bordering countries do not respect our protocols on these very important issues of bringing food into Nigeria, border closure will remain.

“I think we are producing enough food to feed ourselves. There is no hunger in the country and when people talk about hunger I just laugh because they do not know hunger. They need to go to other countries to know what hunger is all about.

“If you say I miss my breakfast and I get lunch and dinner, then that is alright.”

He continued: “Part of the problem of overweight is not necessarily the issue of a balanced diet, but some of us stay put without knowing that Nigeria used to be a former zone for migration in the sub-Sahara Africa.

“The problem of obesity is not necessarily the issue of a balanced diet but because some of us just decide to stay without doing exercise often,” he said.


Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Country Representative of Food and Agriculture Organisation (FOA), Suffyan Koroma, has appealed to the government to adopt policies to prioritise the availability and affordability of safe nutrition because of the increase of malnutrition.

“One in three children is stunted and underweight is currently at 19.9%, which is higher than the globally accepted numbers,” he added.

A Pan-Africa non-governmental organisation (NGO), Feed Africa Advocacy Network (FAAN) has declared that the recent border closure by the federal government which has triggered an astronomical increase in the prices of some food has exposed the reality that Nigeria is far from meeting domestic needs.

The closure has led to a sharp increase in the prices of some major foods, including rice, questioning official claim that the country is self-sufficient in rice production.

A 50 kilogram bag of local UMZA rice goes for about N19,500 as against N14,000-N15,000 before the border closure while another local brand, Big Bull sells for about N21,000 now as against N15,000 earlier.

You can say this because they don’t know what the masses are feeling. You move from an AC filled new Cars into ac filled offices and sleep in ac filled houses. You eat the best of everything all on taxpayer’s money. How can you possibly know that people are hungry? Time will tell

How would they know when polithiefians earn millions per month?

I don't blame them though. I blame the foolish average ones who encourage them. Like the person who posted earlier that Moremi Soyinka has been getting offers to work with each govt since Obasanjo regime because she's better & not connection stuff,,,,,Imagine! What qualifications does she have that no other Nigerian has?
All na recommendation stufftongue
