Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has called on the governors of South-West states to inject at least 15 per cent of their annual budget into agriculture.

This call is coming against the backdrop of the recent food crisis in the region occassioned by the halting of the movement of food supply to the South from the North by the Amalgamated Union of Food and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN).

Adams, on Friday, said such allocation would make a huge impact on sustainable food production in the region.

He expressed that the south-west consumes more than N8 billion worth of food and dairy products daily.

He said the recent food crisis was a clarion call to the south-west stakeholders, including security groups to provide the necessary security for farmers in order to produce enough agricultural produce.
