He lamented that with bandits forcing the farming communities to pay levies, the country can’t have food security.

Former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani has explained why there can't be food security in the country.

According to him, the reason is because farmers are being slaughtered by terrorists.

He lamented that with bandits forcing the farming communities to pay levies, the country can’t have food security.

Tweeting, Sani wrote: “You cannot have food security in a country where farmers are slaughtered by terrorists and farming communities are forced to pay levies to Bandits.

“The declaration of emergency on food security exposed the deception about those rice pyramids and the futility of closing the land borders.”

Recall that President Bola Tinubu had declared a state of emergency on food.

This was a step to mitigate the sufferings experienced by Nigerians following the removal of fuel subsidy.

Tinubu took the decision after wide consultation with stakeholders in the food and agriculture value chain, co-opting the Central Bank of Nigeria, Customs, Farmers Association, key financial experts, among others.
