The Federal Government has said food insecurity, malnutrition and climate change are responsible for lower incomes and higher prices of foods in the country.

Permanent Secretary, Budget and Planning, Nebolisa Anako, who was represented by the Director, National Monitoring and Evaluation, Zakari Lawani, disclosed this at an ongoing workshop on the development of an implementation strategy for the Nigeria Food Systems Transformation Pathways.

Anako stated that the ongoing programme is a call to action to achieve progress in dealing with issues of poverty, hunger, malnutrition, disease, unemployment, conflict and changing weather patterns.

The Secretary noted that the challenges have put food out of the reach of many Nigerians.
