Crisis: FG to Launch National Grains Distribution

To help alleviate the effects of the crisis in Nigeria, the federal government will start distributing cereals countrywide.

This was revealed on Monday by Senator Abubakar Kyari, the Minister of Agriculture and Food Security.

He addressed his fellow Nigerians on his official X account. Those impacted by the country’s difficulties have my deepest sympathies during these difficult times. In light of the recent tragedy of food warehouse looting, I fully grasp the seriousness of the situation.

I want you to know that no matter what happens, our dedication to you and your safety will not waver.

Mr. President has authorised the distribution of 42,000 metric tonnes of wheat across the 36 states of the union, which is one of the programmes set to commence this week.

To guarantee the correct people receive the proper amounts of grain in the right packaging, we are coordinating closely with NEMA and the DSS. For market stability, giant rice mills would also discharge 58,500 metric tonnes of milled rice.

The minister encouraged the Nigerian people to support President Bola Tinubu’s administration as it works to solve the country’s problems, praising the people’s tenacity.

The resilience of the Nigerian people is what will get us through these tough times, and I salute them for it. Kyari urged everyone to join Mr. President in his quest for a more prosperous Nigeria.

“The administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is fully dedicated to tackling these problems and ensuring a future that is both secure and prosperous for everyone.”

The administration is taking steps to alleviate hardship in the country, and this development is one of them. Living expenses in Nigeria have skyrocketed following the demonetization of fuel subsidies and the naira’s floating.

Protests have broken out across Nigeria as citizens call on the government to alleviate their economic woes. Theft has also occurred at a number of food vans and warehouses.

Still, the federal government is urging patient, reassuring that Tinubu’s administration’s initiatives will eventually bear fruit.
