Nigeria Has Met MDGs Hunger Target, Says FAO

THE United Nations (UN) Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) has listed Nigeria among 38 countries that have already met the internationally set hunger eradication targets ahead of 2015 to halve the proportion of people who suffer from hunger. 

The 38 countries will be honoured at a high-level ceremony at FAO headquarters in Rome on 16, June.

In a publication on its website on Wednesday, the global body said with less than 1,000 days remaining for the achievement of the eight anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the 38 countries have met part of the first MDG which calls on member states to halve by 2015 the proportion of people who suffer from hunger.  In a statement issued by the media consultant to the Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on MDGs, Desmond Utomwen, MDGs managers in Nigeria stated that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on MDGs, Dr. Precious Gbeneol, with the support of President Goodluck Jonathan is committed to ensuring that the population of Nigerians living in poverty is further reduced before the 2015 deadline.
