The food expert noted that food security will help in actualising humanity with a humane countenance devoid of segregation.
He added, “I welcome the representative of the leadership of FOOD NOT BOMBS movement worldwide to Ogun state and felicitate with the Bibi’re Group in partnering with this laudable innovative aimed at ameliorating the utmost need of reaching out to people directly through provision of FOOD as the basic ingredient of survival as consequent upon the popular Maxim that “an hungry Man is an angry Man”
“My previous contact with the Food not bombs movement vis a vis my inordinate ambition to care for the needy and contribute meaningfully to humanity at large without bias or whims.
” I am encouraged and agreed with the words of Martin Luther king Jnr says that “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on defence than on programs of social defence is approaching spiritual death, which is why I’m support the initiative in order to actualise our much needed humanity with a humane countenance devoid of segregation.”
