Reno To Obi: Stop Politicising Hunger


0

A former Presidential Aide, Reno Omokri has lambasted the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 General Election, Mr. Peter Obi for describing the food supplied to Nigeria by Ukraine as National Disgrace, urging him to stop politicising hunger.

Omokri who posted this on his X handle on Tuesday, said, “it is very ignorant for Peter Obi to say that it is a “national disgrace” for Nigeria to receive food aid from Ukraine because it is a war-torn country.

“Peter Obi needs to be educated about Ukraine and wheat”, he said.

The Nigerian Author and Social Media Influencer noted that Egypt received food aid from Ukraine long before Nigeria did. And Egypt is still dependent on Ukraine for 60% of its wheat and much of its fertiliser needs.

“Yet, Egypt is a country that Peter Obi praises. Obi even went to Egypt to study their economy”, he noted.

He maintained that it is not everything that should be politicised, explaining that Ukraine is the world’s seventh-largest wheat producer, and the war in Ukraine has not affected her position.

He further explained that the whole world was affected when Ukrainian wheat could not hit the market, and the World Trade Organisation, led by a Nigerian, helped to organise a deal with Russia that allowed Ukrainian wheat to get to countries like America.

Omokri said, the “Ukrainian wheat is not only bought by America but it is also being used as food aid to multiple countries. Obi should stop politicising hunger!”.

Recall that Obi yesterday described the food donated to Nigeria by the war-torn Ukraine, as a national disgrace, saying that it was disheartening that Nigeria, a nation blessed with vast arable land and abundant natural resources, would now rely on a war-torn Ukraine for food assistance.

This, he blamed on years of leadership failure in the country, calling for urgent reordering of national priorities and resource management and allocation.
