….as Agric Minister inspects Dangote PLC Fertilizer planf.

The Federal Ministry of Agriculture says Dangote Fertilizer Limited is part of a larger effort to create jobs and drive economic growth.

Alhaji Muhammad Sabo Nanono made this known during a facility tour of the Dangote Fertiliser plant in Lagos at the weekend, where he noted that it is a vital source of high-skilled jobs and that the investment will further development and spur growth.

He said Dangote Fertiliser Limited is important to the achievement of the government’s Agricultural Transformation Agenda, aimed at boosting food security in the country.

Nanono called on the company to assist the Federal Government’s agricultural mechanisation scheme as well as extension services for small scale farmers.

His words, “There is need for us to support small scale farmers who have been helping the government in respect to food security. Once the small-scale farmers get all the necessary support, there will be agricultural revolution in this country.

”It is very clear that Dangote, in one way or the other, will help in this programme by the Federal Government.”
