Agbekoya Society of Nigeria, which is a parental body of Agbekoya Farmers Association, a leading agricultural organization dedicated to the advancement, development, and security of the agricultural sector, has commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the recent provision implemented to address the alarming hike in food prices across the nation.

The group made this known in a statement jointly signed by its President, Aree Chief Kamorudeen Okikiola, and the Secretary-General, Dr Adegbenro Ogunlana, in Lagos on Friday.

The agricultural sector plays a crucial role in ensuring food security and stability for the country’s population. However, in recent times, escalating food prices have posed significant challenges for consumers, particularly those belonging to vulnerable segments of society. Recognizing the gravity of this issue, President Tinubu has taken decisive action to alleviate the burden on citizens and stabilize the food market by declaring a State of Emergency on Food Security.

The statement said that the declaration of State of Emergency on Food Security by Mr. President is a testament to their commitment to fostering a prosperous and resilient agricultural sector. By implementing measures that address the root causes of rising food prices, President Tinubu has demonstrated their dedication to promoting sustainable agricultural practices and ensuring the availability of affordable, high-quality food for all.

Agbekoya Society wholeheartedly supports the steps taken by President Tinubu to combat the food price hike. The provision acknowledges the importance of collaborative efforts between the government and the agricultural community to address the underlying factors affecting food prices. It reflects an inclusive approach that fosters partnerships and encourages dialogue between all stakeholders involved in the agricultural value chain.

Moreover, President Tinubu’s recognition of the agricultural sector’s significance and its commitment to its growth and development sends a positive message to farmers, agribusinesses, and other key players in the industry. It boosts confidence and encourages investment in agricultural innovation, infrastructure, and capacity building, ensuring long-term sustainability and competitiveness.

Agbekoya Society commends the President’s vision and proactive measures to mitigate the food price crisis. The agricultural community stands ready to collaborate closely with the government, offering their expertise and support to implement and fine-tune the provision’s strategies, ensuring their effectiveness and positive impact on food security.

The agricultural sector is vital for the nation’s economic progress and the well-being of its citizens. The commitment shown by Mr. President demonstrates their understanding of this fact and their determination to foster an environment that promotes agricultural productivity, market stability, and affordable food prices.

Agbekoya Society extends its gratitude to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration for their decisive leadership and urges all stakeholders to join hands in implementing the provision effectively. And believed that it wouldn’t be business as usual for the agricultural cabal to hijack the process like it was during last and previous governments, where real farmers has no access to any government programs than propaganda.

By working together, we can build a sustainable and thriving agricultural sector that serves as the backbone of our nation’s prosperity.
