Buhari MBy agronigeria, October 2, 2017
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that no fewer than 200,000 smallholder farmers across the country have benefitted from the N43.9 billion Central Bank of Nigeria’s Anchor Borrowers Programme since it was inaugurated in November 2015.
In a nationwide broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 57th independence anniversary on Sunday in Abuja, Buhari asserted that the implementation of the programme, which involved disbursement of funds to farmers through the CBN and 13 participating institutions had been successful.
He stated that the programme which was being implemented in collaboration with the states involved production of eight commodities namely rice, wheat, maize, cotton, soya-beans, poultry, cassava, groundnuts, and fish on 233,000 hectares of farmland.
While commending the governors of Kebbi, Lagos, Ebonyi and Jigawa States for their initiatives on rice and fertilizers, he also commended the governors of Ondo, Edo, Delta, Imo, Cross River, Benue, Ogun, Kaduna and Plateau states for supporting the Presidential initiative for palm oil, rubber, cashew, cassava, potatoes and others crops.
The President noted his government has produced over 7 million 50Kg bags of fertilizers since December last year.
He added that Nigeria has saved $150 million in foreign exchange and N60 billion in subsidy, following the revitalization of 11 blending plants with a combined capacity of 2.1 million metric tonnes, a move that has reduced fertilizer prices from N13,000 to N5,500 per 50Kg bag.
