NORTHERN ELDERS BLAME INSECURITY FOR FOOD INFLATION IN THE COUNTRY
Written by wave FM on November 19, 2020
The northern elders have attributed the high cost of foodstuffs to the worsening insecurity which makes it difficult for farmers and transporters to convey farm produce from one region to the other.
The elders noted that the security situation in the north had reached a level where incidents of deaths, kidnapping, armed banditry and other violent crimes against the people, occur on daily basis, with many of such going unreported.
National Coordinator of Coalition of Northern Elders for Peace and Development (CNEPD), ZANA GONI, in a statement, called for a rejig of the nation’s security architecture for better performance.
The elders regretted that the high echelon of the military had concentrated on quelling the now rested #EndSARS protesters at the detriment of security of lives and property in the northeast.
