Group decried poverty, food insecurity, malnutrition, and diseases are massive problems in Nigeria as well as soaring food prices which plunged many households into crushing hunger and starvation, exacerbating the country’s already pervasive food insecurity.

This is contained in a communiqué jointly signed by the Executive Director of Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre CISLAC and Transparency International in Nigeria Auwal Ibrahim Musa Rafsanjani, Dr Tayo Aduloju CEO, of Nigerian Economic Summit Group among others.

They stated this after a two-day Retreat for relevant committees of the National Assembly of Nigeria.

The theme of the Retreat was Retreat on Food Fortification, Workforce Nutrition, and Food Systems Transformation.

The Communiqué observed that challenges with food systems are major causes of these problems, but these challenges also create major opportunities for improving food systems.

They also lamented that the high loss of food after harvest, due to poor storage and processing, hinders food security.
