KEEP YOUR FOOD. ISE AGBE N’ISE ILE WA, OMO YORUBA. FOOD BLOCKAGE TO SOUTH: Erelu Tinuade Canvases Yorubas To See It As An Opportunity To Revisit Farming.*
The widely acknowledged custodian of African cultures, who equally is the traditional title holder of Erelu Oodua of Aye kingdom, Erelu Tinuade Mabel Onaneye has on Friday, 5th of March, 2021 enjoined Southwest people and government to see the ongoing food blockage from North to South as a good opportunity to revisiting farming which has long been neglected. We are not lazy, we know how to do farming.
She made the statement from her base in Texas, United States in a press release she signed and made available to the general public following the blockage of food items from North to South by The Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff & Cattle Dealers of Nigeria and Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria who instructed their members to stop the movement of food items from the North to the South.
‘Contrary to the lamentations of my people in the South, this development to me is a blessing in disguise. It’s an opportunity for us to re-visit the long-forgotten farming activities which were our major occupation before the discovery of oil. It is the only way to avoid being dependent on the North for food items!’ Erelu opined.
Erelu posited that both the people and government at all levels in the Southwest must all act fast and work together to achieve this goal. She says it’s a huge insult for Northerners to believe they could starve Southerners to death by refusing to supply the food items when the South has more fertile land and forestry resources than the North.
In conclusion, she calls on Yorubas and the Southwest Governors to begin to see this blockage as a reawakening of historical pastime as farmers and grow the Yoruba nation. By doing this, the government would be creating jobs for youths while also generating revenue to the purse of their respective States.
