The Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has stated that tackling the high level of insecurity in the country will solve the issue of soaring food inflation and other agricultural issues.

Obi disclosed this on Sunday via his verified Twitter account, while celebrating World Food Day, expressing that his administration will take up insecurity as the first priority.

He wrote, “High level of insecurity and the apparent neglect of the agricultural sector, among other factors like the flooding of farmlands are responsible for the prevalent soaring food inflation that is biting hard on the country today.

“While insecurity has kept farmers away from their farmlands, the lack of investment in agriculture has caused the sector to continue to perform poorly. In pursuance of our vision of moving the country from consumption to production,

“I will tackle insecurity as my first priority in government, while ensuring that the vast lands littered across the nation, especially in the North, are well invested in, for massive food production. Happy World Food Day. – PO”
