The House of Representatives has raised the alarm over the looming food shortage in Nigeria, calling on the Federal Government to initiate emergency preventive measures.
At the plenary on Wednesday, the House particularly urged the Presidency, the Ministry of Agriculture and the National Emergency Management Agency to “begin to make arrangements to mitigate the emerging food challenge.”
The House also mandated its relevant committees to interface with the appropriate ministries and agencies as well as the international development partners to “begin the process of establishing and implementing protocols to manage food resources and mitigate the food crisis.”
