The Presidency has charged state governors and council chairmen to wake up to their responsibilities as a panacea to food crisis and hardship in Nigeria.

President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, said Nigeria would be better if governors and local government chairmen boost food production in their domain.

Posting on X, Onanuga berated governors for blaming the Federal Government for the food shortage in the country.

“Let the governors and council chairmen wake up to their responsibilities. The Federal Government is not the only actor in town.

“You have your duties cut out for you. Imagine each state making efforts to boost food production in its domain, build one world class hospital, good roads, good schools etc. Imagine what our country would have become.

“But while governors and the councils shirk their responsibilities, they are quick to call out the Federal Government, which is far away from the people those governors govern.

“Let all governors govern well, along with their councils, food inflation, at least, will disappear. Our Federalism may not be perfect, but we are not a unitary state, where everything must flow from the centre,” he said.
