Imminent Food Crisis in Nigeria Says NEMA in Alert (Drought in 11 States)?

Alert, alert if you are in Nigeria, you may soon be facing a food crisis due to droughts. The way that the water has been rationed here in America, it is likely that we will soon be facing food shortages too.

Scarcity of food is imminent in the country, following the alarm raised by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) that some states in the North may witness drought.

The Northern states are regarded as the food basket of the nation, since most of the foodstuffs come from the region. This revelation followed the warning alert issued by NEMA, at the weekend, over the likelihood of drought in some Northern states, which may lead to scarcity of food in the whole country.
