Food Crisis In Northern Nigeria Stretches

Due to the food crisis that has lingered for a long while in the northern part of Nigeria, this has lead Senetor Bello Maitama Yusuf open  a feeding centre in kano northern Nigeria, in his compound where the poor  mostly beggars troop in to get food. The owner of this house, a senator in the National Assembly gives out two meals every day to the destitute who wait at his gate begging for help.

The rice arrives in the compound in bins and is divided up into individual servings each receive a plastic bag of cooked rice to eat.
In recent weeks the numbers of people asking for help have swollen. More people are coming into Kano from the country . For example, Fifteen-year-old Mohammed Mu’azu arrived in Kano two weeks ago from his village in neighbouring Jigawa State. “We have no food at home, and I was sent here to bring back money for my family,” he says. ”The food situation is much worse than last year.”

There are some 5,000 inhabitants of this village, with each family group reaching as many as 50 members. Many of the young people have gone out to the city several times and returned with money for the rest.

Mohammed’s mother Mariam looks eagerly at the photo the BBC has taken of her son. She traces her finger around his head in the camera’s display window. He is the oldest of her children; the only one to have so far gone to Kano to look for work, and she keeps a photo of him taken before his journey to the city. He looks less thin and sad in his mother’s photo. “If you see him again, tell him we are thinking of him, and miss him very much,” she says.

It would  interest you to know that Senator Bello Maitama Yusuf gives 15 sacks of rice a day to this people at his home.
