Southwest Conference of Speakers Urges FG to Address Rising Food Prices

The Southwest Conference of Speakers has called on the federal government to address the rising food prices and other commodities in the country.

This was disclosed in a communiqué at the end of a meeting at Ikogosi, Ekiti State, released on Sunday, where the speakers expressed worry over the rising economic concerns and food shortage in Nigeria. 

They implored citizens to also support government efforts in finding lasting solutions to the crisis.

The conference, in its resolutions, pushed for increased regional integration efforts to foster economic growth and development across the Southwest states.

While also speaking on security, the conference  advocated collaborative measures among southwest states to address the escalating security challenges facing the region.

It advocated devolution of power to states and state policing, which it said has become imperative.

It then stressed the need for harmonized legislation to align legal frameworks across the Southwest region as the conference said it would soon hold an exhaustive legislative summit  to address critical issues affecting the region.
