GOOD NEWS: North exports farm produce to Europe
« on: October 28, 2016, 06:57:23 PM »


The Nigeria Custom Service has confirmed that farm produce from some northern states are to be exported to Europe.

Daily trust reports that Mr Abutu Mathias who is the Comptroller in charge of Kano and Jigawa States said this on Thursday, October 28 during the quarterly stakeholders’ forum in Kano.Mathias explained that the essence of the exportation was to complement the efforts of the federal government towards boosting the non-oil sector to revive the nation’s economy.He revealed that the exportation would be done during the November and December harvest of 2016 and that some of the produce to be exported are sesame and gum Arabic grains.

He urged all agencies involved to give the effort a maximum cooperation to achieve the desired goals.

Meanwhile, the scarcity of rice in the market seems to be ending soon as Anambra state has hit its target of 210,000 metric tonnes of rice per annum.

This was revealed by Afam Mbanefo who is the commissioner for agriculture in the state at a Commodity Alliance Forum/Consultative meeting in Awka.

He said the state had earlier targeted production of 210,000 metric tonnes of rice per annum but it seems that has been exceeded.

“Based on the calculation of our expected yield, we are expecting to realise over 236,000 metric tonnes of rice in 2016 based on the production capacity.”

He attributed the calculation to the expected yield of 35 per cent of over 14,300 farmers and rice investors including Coscharis farms, Joseph Agro and others.
