Only failed nations won’t feed its people — US Ambassador

The United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington, on Wednesday said any society that failed to feed its people should be considered a failed society.

Symington said this at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Ibadan during the presentation of a group of young entrepreneurs under the platform of Enable Youth Agriculture programme.

IITA is providing support for many African youths under the EYA initiative to create a platform where they will be encouraged to choose a career in agriculture.
The US ambassador called on African countries to surmount the challenge of food production, stressing that every nation must encourage its youths to go into agriculture in order to boost food production and achieve food sufficiency.
He stated that in the next 30 years, Africa would become the world food basket.
