Ukraine President Zelensky has appointed Mrs Obiageli Ezekwesili, former Nigerian minister, as an ambassador of the Ukrainian government’s programme ‘Grain from Ukraine.’ This is a result of the harsh effects of the global food crisis.

The programme is an initiative of the Ukrainian government to assist countries suffering from severe food shortages relative to the war with Russia.

Head Office of the President of Ukraine, Andriy Yermak Zelensky, disclosed that Ezekwesili and her colleagues are joining international experts and leaders to support the initiative. Since the initiative’s launch in November 2022, more than 30 donor countries have signed up.

Zelensky added, “We see the prospect of expanding the project. To do this, we need reliable partners with knowledge and extensive connections.

Ezekwesili, on her Facebook page (Oby Ezekwesili), gave a reaction over her new appointment where she wrote, “I am delighted to accept the invitation of President @Zelenskyy to be one of 3 leading African experts recently named as Ambassadors of the “Grain from Ukraine” initiative. “Glad to be joining @DrJoyceBanda and @ChrisFomunyoh on this crucial program to stem food insecurity.”
