National Agric Policy Will Transform Agriculture in Nigeria –Minister, Shehuri

The Minister of State for Agricultural and Rural Development, Mustapha Baba Shehuri, has said the implementation of the National Agricultural Technology and Innovation Policy (NATIP), 2022- 2025 will transform the agriculture sector and fast track its revolution in Nigeria.

Shehuri gave this assurance in a statement at the end of the national validation exercise of the NATIP draft 2022-2025, held in Abuja.

According to him, the policy will enhance access to improved inputs and create a nexus among the research and teaching institutions as well as improve the level of agricultural mechanization in the country.

Also, Shehuri said the policy will boost agricultural extension service delivery, create access to finance, and ensure the security of agricultural land and other related investments in the country.

“The thematic issues in this policy framework include stakeholders’ synergy, knowledge creation, and transfer, private sector-driven mechanisation, commodity value-chain development, land and climate management, and agricultural financing,” he said.

He noted that appropriate strategies have been put in place for the smooth implementation of the policy to boost the agricultural sector.
