African Union downplays worries about food shortages in Nigeria


The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (AUDA-NEPAD), the development agency of the African Union, has allayed concerns that more Nigerians may experience food insecurity.

They emphasized how well Nigeria was performing in the agricultural sector.

Gloria Akobundu, AUDA-NEPAD Nigeria’s National Coordinator and Chief Executive Officer, provided the clarification yesterday in Abuja at the conclusion of a national workshop on the use of Juncao technology and how it can help the nation achieve its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and long-term agriculture goals.

The National Engineering Research Centre for Juncao Technology of the Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University (FAFU) of China, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, the Division for SDGs of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DSDG/UNDESA), and AUDA-NEPAD collaborated to organize the event.
