- Bola Tinub has alleged that there is a conspiracy to deny Nigeria food sufficiency
- The APC leader claimed some enemies of the country are trying to disrupt food production in the country
- The politician called on agricultural players to resist the plans of the evil plotters
A Nigerian politician, Bola Tinubu, has said there is a plot by some powerful forces to break Nigeria’s appointment with its greater destiny.
Tinubu who is a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), made the statement on Saturday, April 24, at a convocation ceremony of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, the Benue State capital.
According to The Punch, the politician claimed the plotters plan to achieve their aim by attacking agricultural players in the country, thereby creating food scarcity.
''Terrible people and strong forces want to break Nigeria’s appointment with its greater destiny. These people have unleashed terror and violent criminality against us.
“By attacking agricultural players across the nation, they seek not only to ravage the agricultural community, but to visit misery on the rest of the nation through food scarcity and food costs that poor people can simply not afford. In effect, these mean forces seek to impose a food production and distribution crisis on us by disrupting strategically important agricultural areas and activities.''
Daily Trust reported that Tinubu advised agricultural players to feed the nation and fight evil actors at the same time.
He noted that the federal government has devoted itself to improving the nation’s agricultural sector, adding that though important strides have been made, yet, the country has not reached the promised land.
Meanwhile, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been asked to declare his presidential ambition now.
A group, Disciples of Jagaban (DOJ), noted that it would ask the court to compel Tinubu to contest the election
The DOJ is a merger of 12 political and socio-cultural groups working towards the actualisation of Tinubu’s presidency come 2023.
