Nigeria Faces Escalating Food Insecurity Crisis: UN Report | #NwokeukwuMascot

According to recent data from the UN Humanitarian Aid, at least 18 crisis locations already grappling with food insecurity may soon face "acute food insecurity" if urgent assistance is not provided. This development resonates with a 2014 prophecy by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra.


In an interview with SaharaTV's Rudolf Okonkwo, Kanu predicted that Nigeria would fare worse than Somalia if the Biafran issue remained unresolved. He dismissed the national conference convened by then-President Goodluck Jonathan as futile, arguing that the very architects of Nigeria's problems were tasked with finding solutions.

A recent report highlights that since October 2023, Nigeria and several other countries have been identified as hunger hotspots where acute food insecurity is expected to worsen in the coming months.


This alarming trend is part of a broader regional crisis, with many hunger hotspots located in Africa. Famine fears also loom large in Gaza and Sudan, where ongoing conflicts exacerbate the risk of new hunger emergencies, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP).


WFP Executive Director Cindy McCain emphasized the critical nature of the situation: “Once a famine is declared, it is too late – many people will have already starved to death.” She cited Somalia's 2011 famine, where half of the 250,000 hunger-related deaths occurred before the famine was officially recognized, as a stark reminder of the consequences of inaction.


In South Sudan, the hunger crisis is so dire that the number of people facing starvation is projected to nearly double between April and July 2024 compared to the same period in 2023.


The report attributes this escalation to tight domestic food supplies, sharp currency depreciation, and likely floods, compounded by recurrent subnational conflicts. The influx of returnees and refugees from Sudan is expected to exacerbate food insecurity among both new arrivals and host communities.


Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Myanmar, Syria, and Yemen are also identified as hotspots of "very high concern," with large populations facing critical acute food insecurity and worsening conditions.


Since October 2023, several countries, including the Central African Republic, Lebanon, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Zambia, have joined Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Malawi, Somalia, and Zimbabwe on the list of hunger hotspots.


While conflict remains a primary driver of food insecurity, the joint early warning report from WFP and FAO also highlights the significant impact of climate shocks, particularly the lingering effects of El Niño. Although this weather phenomenon is ending, it has caused severe and widespread drought in southern Africa and extensive flooding in East Africa.


Looking ahead, the potential impact of La Niña between August 2024 and February 2025 poses a looming threat, with significant implications for rainfall patterns.


The UN agencies' assessment predicts flooding in South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, Haiti, Chad, Mali, Nigeria, and Sudan, potentially bringing further climate extremes that could devastate lives and livelihoods.


The urgent call for humanitarian action underscores the need for immediate international cooperation to prevent further deterioration of food security in these critical regions.


The window to avert catastrophe is narrow, and the global community must act swiftly to provide necessary aid and support to those in desperate need.
