South-West Govs brainstorm over insecurity, rising food cost

By Grace Samuel

In a strategic meeting at the DAWN Commission’s office in Ibadan, Commissioners for Agriculture from the South-West states and key stakeholders gathered to devise strategies for enhancing agriculture and food production in the region.

Directed by the South-West Governors’ Forum, the meeting aimed to achieve self-sufficiency in food production and foster collaboration among agriculture ministries, transportation, trade, commerce, and research organizations.

Attendees included representatives from the DAWN Commission, SWAgCO Limited, NACCIMA, and other stakeholders. The focus was on introducing modern research and technology to improve agriculture in the region.

Additionally, the states agreed to strengthen farm security through specialized units within the Amotekun Corps.

Dr. Seye Oyeleye, Director-General of DAWN, emphasized the need to dispel misconceptions about the region’s ability to produce its own food.

He urged the meeting to provide actionable recommendations for implementation by state governors within the next few months. A communique detailing the meeting’s outcomes is expected to be released today.
