The country’s vice president, Osinbajo had said in a meeting about nutrition. Osinbajo said that the plan for the initiative was to tackle malnutrition in the country so as to implement the UN- backed food Dialogue. Osinbajo also talks about the state’s helping by releasing budget for nutrition and with them providing helps for farmers in terms of weather and soil features so to increase farm yields.
The vice president statement reads;
There are practical steps that can be taken by the states and Federal Government in the next 12 months.
I think that some of the suggestions are important, especially those that have come from the UN Food System Dialogue and suggest help from weather agencies to farmers.Professor Osinbajo told the meeting.
In the meeting he also said that the establishment of urban farms and homestead gardens by individuals and schools which would help the country’s farm yields. He also mentioned that the UN and other other nutrition agencies should be called for nutritional advices.
He urge the states to budget adequately for nutrition and explains that plans could still be made for the budget 2022.
He had termed the new movement for the country “Operation feed Yourself“, this term meaning that you have to feed Yourself as he had stated before for the establishment of Urban and Homestead farm.
States and the FGN will promote what the convener has described as ‘Operation Feed Yourself’. This is more of the establishment of urban farms and homestead gardens.
This is simply something that we think should be a mass appeal to citizens in the states, and the encouragement we can give them so that individuals and schools develop their own farms or homestead gardens.
This obviously not only helps individuals and families, but the excess can be sold to others and generally improve food security. The establishment of agribusiness investment hubs or farm settlements or farm estates or any variety of those kinds of integrated farming arrangements will improve food and nutrition security.
What we are recommending is the sort of model that Oyo State has or any of the variety that states have. That sort is obviously recommended because of the way that it is structured and the obviously good result that they have been getting.
