Tackling Insecurity is My Priority, Says Peter Obi

The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, on Sunday, promised to tackle insecurity as his first priority if elected as president during next year’s election.

Aside from tackling insecurity, the former Anambra State governor also promised to judiciously use the vast lands across the nation for massive food production.

Obi, who was reacting to food inflation across the country on his Twitter page, attributed the challenge to alleged neglect of the agricultural sector among others.

According to him, insecurity has kept farmers away from their farmlands and the lack of investment in agriculture has caused the sector to continue to perform poorly.

He wrote, “High level of insecurity and the apparent neglect of the agricultural sector, among other factors like the flooding of farmlands are responsible for the prevalent soaring food inflation that is biting hard on the country today.

“While insecurity has kept farmers away from their farmlands, the lack of investment in agriculture has caused the sector to continue to perform poorly. In pursuance of our vision of moving the country from consumption to production,

“I will tackle insecurity as my first priority in government, while ensuring that the vast lands littered across the nation, especially in the North, are well invested in, for massive food production. Happy World Food Day. – PO”
