Food inflation in Nigeria as at May 2024 was put 40.66 per cent.

Liverpool-Tasie, who is the lead Principal Investigator on a multi-million dollar project, Research Supporting African MSMEs to Provide Safe and Nutritious Food (RSM2SNF) in Nigeria and Tanzania, lamented the high cost of food items.

The programme took place at the University of Ibadan’s Centre For Sustainable Development (CESDEV), Bodija, Ibadan.
