The Executive Chairman of the Centre for Anti- Corruption and Open Leadership (CACOL), Mr. Debo Adeniran, has described the setting up of a Task Force on food security as a superfluous and extraneous step that had boldly revealed the insensitivity of government to pains of the vast majority occasioned by the economic recession that had practically engulfed the country.
Adeniran in a statement issued yesterday said “the setting up of the task force clearly indicates that the government believes the mass of the people are making fables out of their true situation of existence.
“This is sad because we can see through government’s attempt to deny its failure in handling the economic situation by insinuating that the rise in costs of food is artificial. “It is extreme tomfoolery and indeed reprehensive based on the insensitivity the insinuation portrays!
“There are several questions we need to ask to ascertain that this yet another futile step designed to distract attention of poor from their pains by government through false pretenses.
