Hardship: Tinubu unaware Nigerians are hungry, angry — Ndume

Written by on July 11, 2024

Ndume was reacting to a resolution of the senate, which advised the federal government  to address the hunger in the land or face the wrath of the people.

Ndume had on Tuesday co-sponsored a motion moved by Chairman, Committee on Senate Services, Senator Sunday Karimi, titled, “Urgent Need to address food insecurity and market exploitation of consumables in Nigeria.”

The senator told journalists that nothing appreciable was being done in recent times to deescalate the security challenge in the country, which remained a permanent threat to food security.

Ndume said, “Mr. President is not in the picture of what is happening outside the villa. He has been fenced off and caged. So many of us won’t go through the backdoor to engage him.

“Now, they have stopped him from talking and he doesn’t have public affairs managers, except that his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, who writes press statements.

“Nigerians are getting very, very angry. The government is not doing anything about the food scarcity and it needs to do something urgently. We don’t have food reserve.

“There is unavailability of food. Food crisis is the worst crisis that any nation can encounter. If we add that to security crisis, it will be severe.”
