These incidents, he says, are part of the reasons for food inflation in Nigeria. He adds that inflation now has two major drivers, namely transportation and food, with food being the primary driver. 

He also adds that to deal with food inflation, we need farmers to go to their farms every day, and in safety. If we cannot make this happen, he says food inflation is guaranteed.
