The Federal Government has issued a warning to Nigerians about the risk of food scarcity as a result of the ongoing destruction of farm produce, livestock, and traders’ homes in several parts of the country.
The targeted assault on farmers and traders, particularly those from the north, according to Alhaji Sabo Nanono, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, will only cause unnecessary strife in the country.
Nanono stated that each section of the country relies on the other to thrive, and that many people are unaware of the realities and significance of coexisting.
The minister stated this when he played host to members of the National Onion Producers, Processors and Marketers Association of Nigeria (NOPPMAN) in Abuja, Voice of Nigeria reports.

He went on to say that the Nigerian constitution permits any citizen to go to, dwell in, and earn a living in any area of the country without restriction.
According to Ahmed Aminu, the minister’s Technical Adviser on Media, his principle was referring to an example of an Imo farmer who lives in Kano state and earns more than N200 million annually.
“I wonder how it would feel if we woke up one day and asked the guy, who has spent decades in rural Kano, to pack his belongings and return to Imo State,” Nanono added.
