Nigeria’s First Lady, Unveils Small Private Vegetable Garden In State House, Says It's Her Contribution To Nation's Food Drive | #NwokeukwuMascot


Sen Oluremi Tinubu
Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, has unveiled a private vegetable garden at the State House, contributing to the nation's food security efforts. 

In a video posted on the social media platform X by TVC television, Mrs. Tinubu revealed that the garden features at least seven types of vegetables, including spinach, water leaf, bitter leaf, ewedu, lemon grass, scent leaf, and okra.

The First Lady emphasized the impact of individual actions, noting that while each effort might seem small, they can collectively drive significant progress in advancing food security. She stressed the importance of collaborative efforts to bring about meaningful change.

She said: "I am trying to be a farmer because we need food in Nigeria and everybody should try to grow something. I didn't know what I can add to State House and I thought a private vegetable garden will be nice, that has very good health benefits. I have Okro, Ewedu, water leaf, vegetables, lemon and bitter leaf. 

"For me, this is my own contribution to food drive and I believe that anybody can do it and my young friends are here to see us unveil this, so that they too can be challenged. 

“This little garden will be able to provide healthy vegetables enough for my household and I would definitely be able to let some of my staff have as well.

“The solution to any problem lies in everyone contributing their own quota to getting that solution. As a leader, I must show example and plant my own garden.

This will also enhance communal living and help drive the food security campaign of the Federal Government. The vegetables are medicinal and the garden is to lead by example for other women to embrace smart gardening.” 


Also, on her X account on Saturday, she advised Nigerian women to get involved in farming to boost food production in the country.

"#EveryHomeAGarden competition by the Renewed Hope Initiative, RHI is not just a competition. It aims to inculcate the habit of farming and food production into the society right from the family unit and promote eating healthy foods.


"Earlier today, I was at my garden to tend to it and water my plants myself. I have planted 7 different vegetables.


"I would like to encourage all Nigerian women to join the #EveryHomeAGarden competition and get involved in farming and food production," she wrote.
