FG seeks stronger partnership with the US government on food production
The Federal Government has solicited a stronger partnership and collaboration between the Ministry of Agriculture and the United States of America (USA) through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD), Alhaji Muhammad Sabo Nanono, made the appeal when the USAID delegation, led by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard, paid him a visit in his office in Abuja yesterday.
Nanono emphasised the imperative of stronger partnership between the US and Nigeria in the sector for food sufficiency and food security. According to him, “The first priority is to feed ourselves, produce more and create jobs which will, in turn, reduce the huge burden of unemployment.’’
