Olasupo emphasized that “building a resilient plant health system is not just a choice but an imperative. 

He also highlighted the profound impact of climate change on plant health such as the rising temperatures, extreme weather events, and the emergence of new pests and diseases. “These factors pose significant threats to global food security and necessitate the urgent need for a resilient plant health system,” Olasupo said. 

 

“Integrated pest management approaches, climate-smart agriculture initiatives, and community-based plant health programs are models that empower farmers and protect crops from climate-related challenges.”

Addressing the challenges and opportunities in this field, Abideen emphasized the need for innovative funding mechanisms, the adoption of new technologies, and the consideration of socioeconomic and cultural factors in implementing resilient practices across diverse farming communities.

Thu May 11 , 2023
The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has announced Mubarak Saliu Musa as its candidate for governor of Kogi State, with Tanimu Idris serving as his running mate. In a recent statement, the National Publicity Secretary of the NNPP, Agbo Major, claimed that Musa had won the party’s governorship primary election in Lokoja, Kogi State, which had been duly observed by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). He also claimed that he had been given the NNPP certificate of return. In order to create a better Kogi State, he claims that the party’s leadership is in favor of Dr. Musa’s candidacy and has been working to elect him and his running mate, Idris. “A man of enormous intellectual capacity, honour, and integrity, Dr Mubarak Saliu Musa is the most credible and competent candidate for governor of Kogi State. “NNPP dissociates itself from any other person claiming to be the party’s governorship candidate in the state and warns the impostor to desist from his campaign of calumny forthwith or face the full weight of the law as there is no faction in our great party. “As a grassroots political party, the NNPP is strongly determined to win the Kogi State governorship poll and will not tolerate any distraction in its patriotic zeal to transform the state into a modern industrial one and deliver dividends of democracy to the long-suffering and marginalized people. “NNPP, therefore, urges the good people of Kogi to vigorously support, campaign for, and elect Dr. Mubarak as the next governor of Kogi State come November 2023,” he added.
