The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security has debunked stories of its deliberate delay in the distribution of rice palliative.

The Director of Information in the ministry, Dr Joel Oruche, made this known in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

He said the issue under reference concerns constituency projects budgeted for under the 2023 Supplementary Appropriation and domiciled in the Ministry.

“The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security is not distributing any palliative.

“The issue under reference concerns constituency projects budgeted for under the 2023 Supplementary Appropriation and domiciled in the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security.

“It is common knowledge that funds for National Assembly constituency projects are domiciled in the relevant Ministry for purposes of implementation.”

The statement acknowledged the ongoing implementation process for the 2023 Supplementary Appropriation, with Oruche providing insights into the diverse needs of constituents addressed through these projects.

These include provisions for staple grains and the development of various agricultural infrastructure, as determined by the respective members of the National Assembly. (NAN)
