Famine is looming in Nigeria – Daddy Freeze warns

Nigerian influencer and media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, has raised an alarm about an impending famine in the country.

The controversial OAP asserted that Nigeria’s currency, the Naira will continue to depreciate as long as the nation isn’t exporting enough commodities to gain hard currencies in return.

Freeze who shared his concerns in a video posted on his social media page, advised Nigerians in urban areas, who are earning poor wages to leave the cities and return to their villages.

He said there is an urgent need for a good number of the population to venture into farming as that will be an effective way to combat the looming famine.

Daddy Freeze also emphasised the importance of government support to farmers and business owners, who wish to build factories for the production of exportable goods.

He said; “We will continue to see the decline in our currency because we are not selling anything and getting hard currencies in return. That needs to be fixed by two sets of people: the government and the citizenry.

“Citizens, if you’re working in Lagos and you’re earning N50,000 monthly, I think it is high time you went back to your village, got some land and started farming. There’s a looming possibility of a famine in this country. There’s not enough food to go around.

“From my understanding of the situation, here is my advice: My Igbo brothers and sisters building mansions to compete with each other in the village…I’m not saying it’s wrong, but instead of building mansions, build more factories.

“You need to build more factories and the government needs to support you. The government needs to do whatever it takes so that your businesses can succeed.

“And by business, I mean businesses with export targets. Whatever you are producing should be exported. We import milk from France and Denmark. We cannot rely only on oil. The government needs to support local manufacturers.”
