The federal government, through the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, said it won’t allow insecurity to stop food production in the country.
Abubakar Mahmood, the Minister of Agriculture said that the government is doing everything possible to ensure farmers’ safety and to enable farmers to return to their farms without being kidnapped.
He also promised that the government would not allow insecurity to cease food production in Nigeria.
“The government is doing whatever it can and is at the top of the issue. I can assure you that the government will not allow insecurity to stop our food production.
“As you can see, food is produced widely across the country and we will make sure it does not stop,” he said.
