NESG wages food security campaign in six geopolitical zones 

In its drive to ensure safe, nutritious and affordable food for all Nigerians, the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) has embarked on an awareness and investigation mission in Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones.  

A NESG statement explained that states visited in Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones include Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Borno, Kano, Lagos, and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.  

The NESG also supported the enactment and approval of a bill on food safety and quality and urged people around the world to celebrate World Food Safety Day.  

It should be remembered that World Food Safety Day is celebrated every year on 7 June, to attract attention and mobilize actions to prevent, detect and manage food-borne risks and improve human health.

The theme of this year’s World Food Safety Day is “Safer Food, Better Health” and aims to organize and inspire people around the world to participate and be actively involved in ensuring the availability and consumption of safe food, nutritious and convenient. 

The NESG explained that safe food is one of the most critical guarantors of good health. 

“Unsafe foods are the cause of many diseases and contribute to other poor health conditions, such as impaired growth and development, micronutrient deficiencies, non-communicable or communicable diseases and mental illness.  

“Globally, one in ten people suffer from foodborne illnesses every year.
