The national president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Francis Wale-Oke, has thrown his weight behind the FOOD4ALL Initiative, a programme designed to address the lingering food crisis and economic hardship in Nigeria.

The initiative, a joint creation of two NGOs – FUND-YES Cooperative and Multi-Life Savers For The Less Privileged People – aimed to provide food security and agri-food entrepreneurship opportunities to millions of Nigerians, particularly youths and young women, through the ‘One-Family-One-Farmer Scheme'.

Oke, who is also the Chancellor of Precious Cornerstone University, received the FOOD4ALL Advocacy Team, led by Comrade Kennedy Iyere, at the headquarters of the Sword Of The Spirit Ministries (a.k.a Christ Life Church) in Ibadan, Oyo State, and pledged his full support for the programme.

The cleric, who's the founding President of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries, described the initiative as a great intervention that would take care of the ticking time bomb of food insecurity and acute hunger crisis in the country.

“The hunger in the country if not speedily tackled will result into a chaotic and catastrophic mass protest by angry and hungry people, who are overwhelmed with unbearable hunger and economic hardship. I urge influential Nigerians and all well-meaning citizens to give their support and commitment towards the success of this great intervention program,” Bishop Oke said.

On his part, Iyere urged Nigerians in Diaspora to partner with the initiative, noting that the Food4All Initiative was designed to grow a national grassroots cooperative business network of six million food entrepreneurs.

“The programme has received widespread endorsement from various organisations and individuals, including traditional institutions, religious bodies, and NGOs. A fundraising campaign will kick-start on July 11, 2024, to generate funds for the implementation of the programme.

“The initiative is designed to tackle hunger, high food prices, unemployment, economic hardship, and household poverty, which are critical challenges facing Nigeria.

“The programme's successful implementation is expected to have a positive impact on the country's political stability, national security, and economic productivity.

“The PFN's endorsement is a significant step towards addressing the food crisis and economic hardship facing millions of Nigerians. With the support of influential Nigerians and global partners, the FOOD4ALL Initiative is poised to make a positive impact on the lives of millions of Nigerians,” Iyere stated.
