President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha has bared her mind on the problem of malnutrition in the country.
She disclosed that Nigeria may not have competent young adults to run the government, business and academia in the future if the problem is not solved.
The First Lady who was represented by Mrs. Oludolapo Osinbajo, Wife of the Vice President at the virtual National Nutrition Summit, said;
“Stakeholders should end the scourge of malnutrition ravaging Nigerian children so that they can survive, thrive and possess the requisite cognitive ability to handle the future.”
“To ignore this is to mortgage our future, because tomorrow, we will not have competent young adults to run government, businesses or even academia.”
“By now we are certain that the Government and people of Nigeria are not oblivious of the nutrition situation in the country.”
“We have also made some progress in recent years, especially having more stakeholders talking about Nutrition, and getting more nutrition-sensitive budget lines at Federal and State levels.”
