THE FOOD SECURITY IMPLICATIONS OF COVID-19 ON NIGERIA BY NANTS AND WAITAD

1.The National Association of Nigerian Traders (NANTS) and West African Institute for Trade and Agricultural Development (WAITAD) observe that the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic has gradually enveloped the global economy and the populations in fear, resulting in automatic and unwitting declaration of ‘State of Emergency’ on the Health sector by several Governments across the world where the disease has killed many and impacted negatively on the economies. We note that where many deadlier diseases which have even taken more lives have failed to attract respect and attention, the corona virus has seamlessly been saluted and gained more prominence with heavy budgetary allocations accorded thereto as a way of appeasing, pacifying or assuaging its ravaging popularity.

ORDERPAPER’S REMTRACK PUTS PRESSURE ON NASS TO BEEF UP EXTRACTIVE SECTOR GOVERNANCE

This app which will soon be launched is a product of the legislative and policy advocacy mouthpiece in Nigeria, Order Paper …
