Professor Tai Oluwagbemi of Kogi State University, Anyigba has called for a series of Marxist legislative policies, including adoption of population control and constitutional amendments, to achieve a policy of food sufficiency in the country.
He canvassed this position in his inaugural lecture titled, “Scientific Elegance and Political Naivety of Food and Wood Sufficiency in Nigeria: The Take of an Agroforester.”
Providing recommendations for sustainable food and wood production, the professor of Forestry and Wildlife said: “Nigeria should create a law allowing couples to have a maximum of two children, and the United Nations (UN) could consider modifying activities earmarked for celebrating either World Hunger Day or World Food Day, or set aside another day to remember the future. This is so that there will be food for children that will be born tomorrow. We should consume today so that our children will not have to starve tomorrow.”
