In a concerted effort to address the critical issue of food security in Nigeria, the House of Representatives Committee on Nutrition and Food Security is poised to convene a landmark summit, slated for Thursday, 29th February 2024, at the esteemed National Assembly Complex. This inaugural meeting will serve as a platform for key stakeholders from both national and international spheres to converge and deliberate on strategies aimed at bolstering the nation's food security and nutritional landscape.

The distinguished gathering will be graced by the esteemed presence of the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Abbas Tajudeen, PhD, underscoring the significance accorded to this pivotal initiative. Noteworthy participants include prominent global entities such as the World Bank Group, UNICEF, Dangote Foundation, Helen Keller International, Nutrition International, among others, highlighting the widespread recognition of the urgency and importance of the matter at hand.

Established in late November 2023, under the able leadership of Rep. Chike John Okafor (APC, Imo), the committee assumes a crucial mandate focused on fortifying and safeguarding nutrition and food security within Nigeria. Its ambit spans a spectrum of pivotal objectives, encompassing the enhancement of legislative frameworks, advocacy for inclusive policy integration, and strategic liaison with national and international agencies dedicated to addressing these imperatives.

Central to its purview is the imperative to advocate for the establishment of a dedicated nutrition budget line within relevant government bodies, alongside the dissemination of awareness initiatives and robust oversight mechanisms. By championing the integration of nutrition and food security imperatives into governmental agendas, the committee endeavors to engender enduring solutions to the multifaceted challenges facing the nation's food security paradigm.

With a steadfast commitment to fostering collaborative engagement and actionable outcomes, the forthcoming summit heralds a seminal juncture in Nigeria's collective endeavor to realize sustainable food security and nutritional resilience. Through synergy and strategic alignment, it is poised to catalyze transformative interventions that resonate across communities, heralding a brighter, more secure future for all Nigerians.
