Food Crisis: APC Chieftain Wants Taskforce On Grains Distribution

2 min read

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State Hon. Olatunbosun Oyintiloye has urged President Bola Tinubu to set up a special taskforce for the distribution of the approved 42,000 metric tonnes of grains from strategic reserves to Nigerians.

Oyintiloye told newsmen in Osogbo that the setting up of the taskforce would ensure that the grains were not diverted.

He said for the masses to benefit from the free grains, the president must put up a taskforce to cripple the activities of saboteurs, who were desperate to make gains from the pains of Nigerians.

Oyintiloye said if the president wanted the poor Nigerians to feel the impact of the released grains, a special taskforce should be constituted to ensure its effective distribution.

He said past experiences had shown that the federal government free grains had not been reaching the targeted Nigerians due to the activities of saboteurs.

Oyintiloye said it would be a great disservice to the country and to the efforts of the president, if the good gesture of the free grains is allowed to be hijacked by private individuals.

He said aside from the staff of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and Department of State Services that would be engaged in the distribution, a special presidential task force should be deployed to states to ensure effective distribution.
