The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, has described as saddening the warning by the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, UNICEF, that 31.5 million Nigerians are at risk of acute hunger and serious food insecurity between June and August 2024.
In a post on his X handle on Wednesday, the former Anambra State governor lamented that the situation in the country has become more complex with the high cost of living and high inflation rate which pervades the economy.
According to him, Nigeria is considered among the 20 hungriest nations in the world, ranking 109 out of 125 countries measured on the Global Hunger Index.
Obi warned that the government must take urgent steps to boost food production in the country to defeat the rising hunger, and attendant anger in the nation, having been given notice of the impending danger.
He expressed sadness that many Nigerian households now spend almost all their income on food alone, leaving all other family expenses to anyone’s imagination.
