Senator Ali Ndume, the Chief Whip of the Senate, has expressed concern over the rising cost of living and food scarcity in Nigeria.

In an interview with BBC Hausa, Ndume stated that the federal government’s inability to address these issues is a major challenge, noting that even some ministers are unable to meet with President Bola Tinubu to discuss the matter.

He emphasized that the government’s doors are closed, making it difficult for ministers and National Assembly members to discuss issues affecting their constituencies.

Ndume, who sponsored a motion with Senator Sunday Steve Karimi to address the food crisis, warned that the situation could lead to famine and starvation, especially among children, if urgent action is not taken.

He cited the example of Katsina State, where children are already suffering from malnutrition due to food scarcity, and drew parallels with the dire situations in Niger Republic and South Sudan, where children are dying due to hunger.

Ndume urged the government to take immediate action to address the food crisis, including meeting with experts and other stakeholders to find a solution.

He expressed disappointment that despite promises to address the issue, the government has yet to take concrete steps.

“We fear that a day may come when even if someone has the financial means to purchase food, they will go to the market and find none available,” he warned.
