Chieftain Wants Tinubu To Monitor Distribution Of Grains

Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Osun State, Mr Olatunbosun Oyinloye, has advised President Bola Tinubu to monitor distribution of grains he recently approved for release from the strategic reserve to Nigerians with a special task force.

This is coming after the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, said President Tinubu approved the release of 42,000 MT of maize, millet and other commodities from the national strategic reserves to address the rising cost of food.

Idris, after a meeting of the Presidential Committee on Emergency Food Intervention, also said the Rice Millers Association of Nigeria had committed to releasing about 60,000 MT of rice to the markets, while, Oyintiloye, said monitoring the distribution has become necessary in order to ensure that the food items were not diverted, but get to the targeted Nigerians.

The ex-lawmaker said precedents had shown that the Federal Government’s free grains had not been reaching targeted Nigerians due to the activities of saboteurs, and for the masses to benefit from the free grains, the President must put up a taskforce that would monitor the distribution and check activities of saboteurs, who may be planning to rip off Nigerians.
