All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN) has urged the Federal Government to set up a special task force to tackle insecurity as part of the plans to address food shortages.
Mr Kabir Ibrahim, National President of AFAN, made the call in an interview with the journalusts in Abuja on Friday.
He said there was a nexus between insecurity in many parts of the country and food security.
He said addressing the nation’s security challenges would go a long way in checking the skyrocketing prices of food items.
Ibrahim advised that the special task force should be made up of various security agencies and organisations in the country.
