IPOB advises Igbos to consider returning to agriculture as a solution to hardship, urging them to invest in farming.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is urging the Southeast populace to embrace farming and invest in agriculture to combat potential food shortages and starvation in the region and Nigeria as a whole.

In a statement issued by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB emphasized the importance of Igbo individuals and philanthropists supporting local farmers by providing them with farming tools and resources instead of distributing temporary food aid.

According to IPOB, it’s imperative for Biafrans to focus on agricultural activities, particularly cash crop cultivation, to mitigate the looming threat of famine in Nigeria. The organization encourages the establishment of Agricultural Cottage Industries for processing and exporting agricultural products, emphasizing the abundant fertile lands in the region.

Additionally, IPOB calls for investment in animal husbandry and agricultural research centers to enhance food production and self-sufficiency. The statement underscores the necessity for the Southeast population to actively engage in farming rather than relying solely on market purchases for sustenance.

IPOB also assures that the Eastern Security Network (ESN) is effectively safeguarding forests and farmlands from Fulani herdsmen incursions, ensuring a conducive environment for farming activities.

The organization pledges to provide high-quality seedlings to selected farmers and stresses the importance of agricultural investment in securing food supplies for Biafrans and facilitating potential exportation.

In conclusion, IPOB urges Biafrans to prioritize agriculture as a means of ensuring food sufficiency and thwarting external control over food supplies, emphasizing that the loyalty of IPOB and ESN lies with the welfare of the Biafran people.
