Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe, a former Minister of Works and Housing, has pointed fingers at the government of former President Muhammadu Buhari for the current food crisis in Nigeria.

Speaking on Channels Television, Ogunlewe attributed the crisis’s root cause to the alleged neglect of academia, specifically universities and researchers, by the Buhari administration.

He criticized the Buhari government’s actions over eight years, accusing it of actively working against the academic community, closing down universities, and denying them essential research grants.

According to him, this stance hindered progress and modernization in farming methods.

The former senator and lawyer emphasized the critical role of research in agricultural development and economic growth.

He urged the current government to rectify this situation by investing in agricultural institutions and research, asserting that Nigeria has no excuse for facing a food shortage given its abundant resources and potential.
