Nigerian government reveals plan to tackle food inflation in 2024


The federal government announced on Friday that plans are underway to curb food inflation in the country.

The Minister of Agriculture and Food Security, Senator Abubakar Kyari, said this when Governor Umaru Namadi of Jigawa State paid a courtesy visit to Abuja.

He said the ministry's goals include ensuring food security and controlling food inflation.

“The biggest driver of inflation today is food price inflation, so we're going to produce a lot to control food inflation,” he said.

Mr Kyari maintained that President Bola Tinubu’s policies on food security are on track.

He said the program on food production would continue in 2024 to positively impact Nigerians.

“To achieve this goal, the ministry is focused on leveraging technology and mechanization to enhance mass production of staple crops.

“We are grateful for the support and guidance of the President as we work towards a more food secure Nigeria. We are ready to implement programs in line with his vision for the agriculture sector.

“We are determined to drive agricultural transformation, improve productivity and ensure farmers have the support they need to thrive,” he said.
