Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has revealed that soon the south won’t be needing food supply from the north to survive.

The group also revealed its latest strategy to ensure an adequate food supply in the region.

Spokesperson of Ohanaeze, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, revealed on Wednesday, March 3, that by the rainy season in 2021, farmers in the region with the help of organisations, will mass-produce food crops.

Ogbonnia specifically stated that by June, October, and November 2021, there will be food in all parts of the south.

He stated this while reacting to the issue of food blockade put up by farmers in the north over the alleged killing of their kinsmen in the south.

Further, he stated that the south is capable of cultivating and supplying the same amount of food produced by the northerners.

Ogbonnia said that those in the south can survive without the north, recalling that persons from the latter were able to cope during the 30-month civil war.

He said: “We are only waiting for the first rain. By the time the first rain comes, all these things they imported from the north, we’ll mass-produce them. By June, October, and November this year, you will see food everywhere in the south.

“So they are helping us to look inward. If three years in Biafra the South-East didn’t die, is it now only one month that we will die? So, I will only say that it is a good development to help the South-East look inward and South-West to look inward also.”
