Food blockage and wake-up call to the West

The recent strike by the association of food sellers was a rude and crude attempt by some janjaweeds to brass the Yoruba and other nationalities of the South, but it is an opportunity for us to address ourselves on the Nigerian affliction.

I recall being with Dr Amos Akingba about two years ago and a nephew phoned him from Ode-Irele that he was hungry.  He told him he should wait for his driver bring yam for him from his backyard in Lagos. The question of food security has always been on the agenda of the mini-national conference I regularly have with Mr Femi Falana (SAN) who says it is embarrassing that our young people now engage only in okada business.

He wonders what our governors are doing concerning food security, when compared with Awo who established farm settlements all over the zone even though they have all become relics. The governors must get back to that season and massively engage our young people in agriculture.
