Enang commends PMB over food security

 

 

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Ita Enang, has described as commendable the measures introduced by President Muhammed Buhari aimed at creating food security and restoring peace, especially in the volatile areas.   
Senator Enang made the commendation while fielding questions from journalists after an important strategic meeting recently, in his office in Abuja.


On agriculture and the economy of the nation,  Enang said the temporary closure of the borders by the federal government has added value to the agricultural production growth adding that this has positively impacted on the economy. 
“Many people who have been out of jobs are now taking to rice, cassava, millet faming etc. So, the closure has positively increased the revenue generation of the country.”


While saying that the boarders should not be opened for now, he urged state governors, particularly those in the South-south to support the measure and take advantage of the closure of border by investing massively in agricultural development.


Enang lauded the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations, Mrs Amina Mohammed on the World Leader Prize at the inaugural Global Citizen award ceremony held in London.
