The aide, however, stated that President Bola Tinubu’s administration is ready to address such challenges through lots of agricultural programs in the country.
According to her, “Coincidentally the level of suffering has increased because of the inflation rate in Nigeria. The communities are our own investment, and the President doesn’t want them to suffer.
“The Presidency has lots of agricultural programs to reach out to the people, so that we can increase the number of food that can be brought to the townships and to other levels, by doing so, it can be addressed.”
