sani dangote 324x160President of Nigeria AgriBusiness Group, (NABG) Sani Dangote has expressed confidence over enormous revolution in agribusiness in 2017

based on synergies formed by the Federal Government and the group. He acknowledged that with President Muhammadu Buhari leading the revolution in the sector and the will to involve the private sector in a renewed drive to diversify the economy, agribusiness will experience a boom and farmers’ living standard will improve.

“Agriculture in Nigeria is still done the way it was done in the 1960’s probably before 1960. But within the next 12 months, we will experience a dramatic revolution in agribusiness. The government of President Buhari has started listening”, he quipped.
Dangote who expressed this optimism at the 2nd Annual General Meeting of NABG held in Abuja, announced that the group in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development were working hard to revamp and propel a guideline on the implementation of the recently launched Agriculture Promotion Policy (APP) tagged Green Alternative, which will propel the expected revolution in Nigeria’s agribusiness within the next 12 months.
Explaining the importance of working synergies the NABG have forged, Dangote is hopeful the coming year would be one of progression in the Agric sector.
“We have engaged the office of the Vice-President, we have also engaged the office of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, and they have agreed to engage NABG to fashion out the way forward for the next 12 months.”
“We have also proposed focusing on industrial food and non-food ingredients manufacturing, and value added processing of staple foods (crops, livestock and fisheries) into packaged, convenient and nutritious food products for domestic consumption and export markets to create jobs, drive competitiveness and significant increase in generated revenue base at the state level.”
He added that the group is poised to influence a shift from encouraging commercial banks to lend to agriculture to directly incentivizing structured cooperative farmers through off-take markets and price stabilization mechanism.
The agro-investor was also positive that with the proposed roadmap for the sector, the expected revolution will bring interest rate for agriculture and agribusiness financing down to five per cent or less in 2017 for more attraction of investors.
