Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has come out to say that an ad-hoc Technical Advisory Group has been set up to support the implementation of the 5-year National Multi-Sectoral Plan of Action on Nutrition (NMPAN).

He recently revealed that this is as a result of the Federal Government’s aim to tackle the problems of hunger and malnutrition in the country.

According to him, the technical advisory group will provide high-level strategic advice and support to the Secretariat of the National Council on Nutrition on the National Policy on Food and Nutrition’s vision and strategy, thereby aiding nutrition positioning and comparative advantage to enable maximum impact.

He added that the elect members of the National Council on Nutrition are heads of major MDAs and agencies, and they are definitely up to the task.

His words, “The technical advisory group will provide high-level strategic advice and support to the Secretariat of the National Council on Nutrition on the National Policy on Food and Nutrition’s vision and strategy, thereby facilitating nutrition positioning and comparative advantage to enable maximum impact.”

“For the next few months, this group composed of select members of the National Council on Nutrition who are heads of major MDAs and agencies will have the following Mandate.”

“To provide technical assistance to the NCN and Secretariat, and facilitate inter and intra-agency coordination, supervision and monitoring, and implementation of the National Multi-sectoral Plan of Action on Nutrition.”

“We need more than ever to think holistically if we are to solve the issues of malnutrition, in my opinion, we have embarked on a new era, where collaboration and active engagement of stakeholders to assist with implementing the NMPAN is embedded in our agenda and should propel us forward.”
