The Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, has told Nigerians that the Federal Government is committed to ensuring every Nigerian has access to food within the next few years.

The minister gave the assurance during the factory tour of Erisco Foods Ltd., on Monday in Lagos.

He said, “The Federal Government is committed to ensuring that our economy recovers to a level where we can create jobs for our people, we can also rebuild our image as a great nation.

“No great nation can be considered great if that country cannot feed its citizens. The government is determined to feed its citizens.

“The journey has started, it is not an easy journey, but I believe that by the grace of God we will achieve it.

“Many other countries have done so. China with 1.4 billion citizens feeds its citizens, so we do not have any reason whatsoever with a population of less than 200 million.

“We should be able to feed our own citizens.”
