The Association for Students’ Social Welfare Nigeria (ASSW) has expressed  enthusiasm regarding the recent announcement of the World Food Programme’s (WFP) commitment to fighting hunger in Nigeria with an impressive investment of $2.5 billion over the next five years. We view this initiative as a significant stride towards realizing Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger.

Mr. Victor Adetolaju, Founder, of the Association for Students Social Welfare Nigeria (ASSW) in a statement on Tuesday said that over the past six years, ASSW has tirelessly worked to eradicate hunger among Nigerian students, aligning our efforts with SDG 2: Zero Hunger. Through various food security programs and collaborations, we have made commendable progress in ensuring that students nationwide have access to nutritious meals, thereby promoting their overall well-being and educational success.

“We are particularly pleased to note that 2.1 million beneficiaries have already been captured under this groundbreaking program, which aligns perfectly with our mission to alleviate hunger. ASSW commends the dedication of the World Food Programme and the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation in their commitment to this noble cause.

“As an organization deeply rooted in the welfare of Nigerian students, ASSW eagerly anticipates the opportunity to become an implementing partner in the Food Security program, working closely with the WFP and the Ministry to ensure that the goals of the Zero Hunger Programme are met. We believe that our extensive experience in addressing hunger issues among students can contribute significantly to the success of this vital initiative.

“We applaud President Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s government for its robust drive to eradicate poverty and reduce humanitarian crises in Nigeria, and we commend the Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Betta Edu, for her exemplary leadership in advancing these goals.

“In conclusion, ASSW stands ready to support and collaborate with the World Food Programme, the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, and all stakeholders involved in the fight against hunger in Nigeria. Together, we can make substantial strides toward achieving Zero Hunger and improving the lives of millions of Nigerians.
