It’s no longer news how food items in the markets rise daily. This has become a serious challenge to various individuals.
Minister Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, said that the federal government (FG) has set up a task force to check high cost of food items across the country.
According to the minister “The council has resolved to set up a task force on food security. He went further saying, government is concerned about the rising cost of food items and the fact that more often than not, even when these products are available and are in the market, they are sold at exorbitant prices. So the government has set up a task force on food security to ensure that an end is put to the wastages that occur and with tons and tons of produce lying fallow in farms or getting rotten in markets”. It is an inter-ministerial committee made up of ministers like: finance, transportation, agriculture and water resources.
