Spokesman to the Vice President, Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, December 15.
The plan was approved by the National Council on Nutrition, which is chaired by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
“National Multi-Sectoral Plan of Action for Food and Nutrition (NMPFAN) 2021-2025”, the plan will guide the implementation of interventions and programmes to address the problems of hunger and malnutrition across all sectors in Nigeria.

It will also reduce stunting rate among under-five year olds to 18% by 2025 through the scaling up of priority high impact nutrition specific and nutrition sensitive interventions.
