The chairman NSITF, Mr Sunday Bamgbose, declared this to Newsmen on Friday in Lagos that no nation could boast of sufficiency if it did not have the capacity for affordable food supply under any circumstance.

He said there would be no positive result to the food crisis in Nigeria if the country continued to apply obsolete solutions to trending challenges.

Bamgbose said; “I don’t expect any positive result if we keep applying 15th century solutions to 21st-century problems. Government needs to do a root cause analysis of the problem affecting food production and apply solutions devoid of sentiments.

“It is abnormal that we are still talking of grazing route in this century when we have a better option in ranching,’’.

He called on the government to pay more attention to the outcomes of its efforts at ensuring abundant and cheaper foods for Nigerians and advised the government not to regard criticisms of some of its food policies as condemnation but rather look at the prospects.
