Nigeria among top 20 most hungry countries – Peter Obi

The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate in the last
general election, Peter Obi, has said that Nigeria is currently among the top
20 most hungry countries in the world.

 

Obi said this follows Nigeria’s position as 109 out of 125
countries in the global hunger index.

 

He made this known in Kebbi State while on private Ramadan
visit, where he was received at the Government House by Secretary to the State
Government, Yakubu Bala Tafida.

 

The former Anambra State governor insisted that Nigeria is
poor and hungry because the Federal Government refused to holistically invest
in agriculture.

 

According to him, such investments should be directed to the
North that possesses vast arable land for peasant and mechanised farming.

 

Obi further lamented that the nation has the highest number
of uncultivated land in the world accompanied by a large population of able
bodied unemployed youth that could have been used to drive the mass
agricultural investment to produce millions of direct and indirect jobs in the
country.

 

He also announced direct Ramadan feeding of 100 indigents
persons as well as the commissioning of a borehole at Kahuta village behind
Dukku Army Barracks in Birnin Kebbi.

 

“We are here to support with water and some little financial
assistance because this is a private visit not political,” he said.
