The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, says the government’s efforts at achieving national security, including the fight against insurgency in the North-East, would be meaningless without food security.
Buratai made the statement during the presentation of farm implements and items by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh to the Nigerian Army in Abuja.
The General explained that the Army was investing in livestock, fisheries, poultry and other aspects of agriculture.
According to him, the army is going beyond carrying arms in the affected areas to ensure security, they are playing active role in supporting the nation’s agriculture potential.”
