Presidential Fertilizer Initiative Programme has commenced. Eleven blending plants are in now in full operation in different locations across the country. The fertilizer will be sold to farmers at a price of N5,500 per 50KG bag only by State Governments, registered distributors and dealers registered with FEPSAN. Intrested distributors/dealers to participate in the scheme can register with any of the blending plants and at FEPSAN office at No 1. NIDB Building, Muhammadu Buhari way, Kaduna.

The PFI, which is an idea of President Muhammadu Buhari, is aimed at boosting farming output and reducing the economy’s dependence on oil.
Figures obtained from the NSIA showed that the fund was used to resuscitate 11 domestic fertilizer blending plants, which led to the production of eight million bags of fertilizer in the country.
The investment, according to investigation, resulted in the creation of estimated 250,000 direct and indirect jobs for the economy.
It was gathered that under the fertilizer initiative, the NSIA maintained its role as programme manager.
Speaking on the development, the Managing Director, NSIA, Mr Uche Orji, told our correspondent that the agency would be increasing its investments in infrastructure projects in the coming months.
To achieve this objective, Orji said the asset allocation strategy of the Sovereign Wealth Fund being managed by the NSIA had been restructured to reflect an increased focus on domestic infrastructure investment.
The SWF that was set up in 2013 with about $1.55bn has three pots from which investments can be anchored.
The pots are Future Generation Fund, Infrastructure Fund, and Fiscal Stabilisation Fund.
The NSIA had allocated 20 per cent of the SWF to the Stabilisation Fund; 40 per cent to the Future Generation Fund; and another 40 per cent to the Infrastructure Fund.
Orji, however, stated that henceforth, 50 per cent of future contributions would be dedicated to infrastructure as against the previous arrangement whereby 40 per cent of the fund was set aside for the same purpose.
He gave the key areas of focus for the NSIA in the infrastructure sector as agriculture, health care, motorways, real estate and power.
The NSIA boss said in addition to the fund already invested in the fertilizer plants, the agency was bridging the deficit gap in the fertilizer supply chain for the benefits of domestic farmers.
“The agriculture sector has remained strategically important to the NSIA, particularly as it is an area where the authority is able to make significant socioeconomic impact and earn substantial returns through direct investments,” he stated.
Orji said apart from the $100m investment in the fertilizer plants, the NSIA had concluded plans to invest $25m (N9bn) in Novum Agric Industries Limited, which is a fully integrated farm located in Nasarawa State.
He added, “The investment was closed within the first quarter of 2018. We expect that the impact of the investment will begin to manifest in the first quarter of 2019 with visible improvements in crop yield, with the attainment of a two-season farming operation and the use of modern infrastructure.
“The NSIA anticipates increased investment in infrastructure as more projects come up to financing close.”
