In a call for increased involvement in agriculture, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the First Lady of Nigeria has called on Nigerians to start cultivating food locally, stating, “We can produce our own food. Everyone should grow something.”

Senator Tinubu reiterated this message during a meeting with Amina Mohammed, the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations, held in her office at the State House in Abuja.

While acknowledging the initiatives of the Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI) in areas such as agriculture, empowerment, education, health, and social welfare, the First Lady stated that their role complements the initiatives of President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

She stressed the significance of instilling a sense of national pride in the youth, encouraging them to prioritize the interests of Nigeria above individual states or ethnic affiliations.

The first lady also disclosed plans for the #ONE NIGERIA/Unity Fabric initiative, designed to engage youths aged between 15 and 25 in creating a fabric that symbolizes the unity of Nigeria, rather than focusing solely on regional or tribal identities.

Addressing the ongoing support for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and individuals with disabilities, she affirmed her unwavering commitment to aiding those in need.

The meeting also served as an introduction of the new Resident Coordinator of the UN in Nigeria, Mohamed Fall, to the First Lady, fostering potential partnerships between the UN and RHI.
