FG Plans To Sell Fertiliser For N5,000 In 2017


The Federal Government has expressed desire towards ensuring that a bag of fertiliser sells for N5,000 next year.


The Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, stated this in Abuja at a special town hall meeting for the youth.

The minister, who asked the youth to go into agriculture, urged them not to see it as an occupation for the peasants.

Mr Ogbeh said he was the first Nigerian to mill rice free of stones in 1986, but was discouraged to continue because commercial banks then had a high interest rate for farmers.

The minister also asked the youth to patronise made-in-Nigeria goods and stop transferring wealth meant for Nigerians to other economies.
