Senator Solomon Adeola (APC-Ogun West), the Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, has assured Nigerians that the 2024 appropriation bill of N28.7 trillion would put an end to hunger in the land.

Adeola stated this on Wednesday in Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun State at the sideline of a New Year celebration he organised to appreciate his supporters.

The senator reiterated that President Bola Tinubu was determined to end the economic hardship faced by Nigerians, as evident in the immediacy with which he signed the 2024 budget into law.

He explained that out of the N28.7 trillion appropriation bill signed by the president, Agriculture alone gulped over N300 billion, saying that it was a sign that the present administration meant business.

He also added that the country would be concentrating so much on food production this year (2024).

”What that simply means is that the government of the day is determined to end hunger in the country and will be doing so much in the area of food production.

“President Tinubu has even, in a way by proxy, supported school feeding in our various schools across the country, and in doing that, local production of food in the country is ensured.

“Also in ending hunger in the land, we (the lawmakers) have done so much in the appropriation act that was just recently signed by Mr President to ensure food security in Nigeria,” he said.
