In a bid to attain food security in the country, the All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN) has advised the government and stakeholders to ensure peace before, during and after the election.
The Vice President of AFAN, Chief Daniel Okafor who made this plea in Abuja noted that no farmer would visit the farm if their security is not guaranteed.
He also pleaded that the agricultural budget and inputs should be distributed on time between the first three months of the year to enhance food production.
Okafor noted that timely implementation of agriculture projects and activities would secure food security in the country in 2019.
In his words “Inputs should be given to farmers and distributed on time and not when the farming season is over.
“Agriculture budget should be timely. It should be approved by January or February to enable the timely implementation of agricultural projects.”
“I wish the government well this year but they should not joke with agriculture,’’Okafor said.
