MasterwebNews 12/10/16 - Nigeria Unity Forum Calls On Buhari To Put Food On The Table of Nigerians

[ Masterweb Reports: Nigeria Media Network (NMN) reports ] - The Nigeria Unity Forum (NUF) has called on President  Mohammadu Buhari to make effort to end hunger in the country and  put food on the table of dying Nigerians. The group lamented that the price of everything is going up in Nigeria and the common man can no longer survive.
 
While noting the corruption in the past that kept us to this abysmal level the NUF called on the present regime to find a solution to the malaise.
 
The Secretary -General of the group who is also the Executive Director of WAR AGAINST POVERTY IN NIGERIA (WAPIN), Hon. Chuks Ibegbu stated this in a Press Conference in Abuja recently. He called for the relaxation on the importation of rice, the staple food of Nigeria until the country can produce enough to feed its citizens. He called all Nigerians to embrace farming no matter the scale. He styled the call OPERATION FEED YOUR SELF.
 
Ibegbu called on the federal government to rechannel recovered looted funds to agriculture. He also suggested that the Army and paramilitaary agencies should all go back to farm since they are idle most of the time except those fighting against BOKO HARAM  in the North East and the ones in the Niger Delta.
