Livestock Ministry: Nigeria in state of emergency on food security – Prof Ken Ife

Professor Ken Ife, the Lead Consultant on Private Sector Development to the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS Commission, has said that Nigeria is in a state of emergency on food security.

He noted that there was no need for President Bola Tinubu to appoint another minister but to shift the Minister of State for Agriculture to head the new Livestock ministry.

Speaking on Arise Television, he noted that food security and agricultural palliatives have been heavily politicised in Nigeria by the current administration.

“In a State of Emergency, you waive your right to due process and that’s the situation Nigeria is in,” he said.

“Rather than having 4 ministers in the agricultural sector, the Minister of State for Agriculture can be moved to head the Ministry of Livestock .”

DAILY POST reported that Tinubu had on Tuesday announced the creation of the Federal Minister of Livestock Development.

He made the announcement amid the lingering crisis between farmers and herders across the country.
