Anambra community moves to end poverty through agric revolution 

Nimo community in Njikoka local government area, Anambra State, Tuesday launched agricultural revolution with a view to fighting hunger and poverty in the country.

The community, at a flag off of 2024 farming session named “Nimo Food Revolution – War Against Hunger,” urged the residents and natives to farm all their available lands for massive food production.

President General of  Nimo Town Development Union (NTDU), Dan Zeelunjo Anakpe – Annaliukwu, said cultivating their arable lands at Owa, Owe, Mkpuluata, Nkokpo, Agu Nogba, Agu ekpe lands and others were capable of reducing hunger to a barest minimum.

Contributing, the assistant national secretary, NTDU, Okeide Tony Mbubah and former chairman of NTDU Lagos branch, Chuks Okonkwo, said they were optimistic that massive food production would help to stop hardship and hike in prices of commodities across markets nationwide.

“We have sensitised our people to clear every place that is not cultivated and plant accordingly because the economy is biting harder on the masses. We will keep encouraging them to ensure that their farmlands make a good yield at the end,” Okonkwo added.
