Aisha Buhari advocates peace-building as tool for food security

Nigeria`s First Lady and President, African First Lady Peace Mission (AFLPM), Aisha Buhari, has advocated for stakeholders to always promote peace-building among farming communities to ensure sustainable food security in the continent.

She made the call in a message delivered by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs and Strategy, Mr Sani Zorro, on Wednesday during a two-day High-Level Forum on Food Security holding in Almaty, the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The meeting was organised by the Islamic Organisation for Food Security (IOFS) to promote food security and agricultural development, especially on the role of women in food security.

She emphasised the need to join forces towards addressing the devastating impact of climate change, especially as it affects women and children as well as food production.

She said a concerted effort must be made by relevant authorities to stem the conflicts between farming communities and herdsmen.

According to her, the situation threatens food production in most farming communities.

She said the government of Nigeria had invested enough resources to curtail the situation and to guarantee safety to the farming communities.

“ Efforts are being made to address the situation in most affected areas in Africa, one of the efforts comes from the humanitarian organisation.

“Efforts from my office and my foundation, the Aisha Buhari Foundation have continued to support women, youths and children who are mostly affected by the challenges affecting our environment.

“We are committed to using the network of Africa first ladies peace mission to influence the teachings of peace and security education in primary, secondary and territory schools in the continent,” she said. (NAN)
