The Nigerian Agric Minister, Sabo Nanono has advocated for a more strategic partnership and robust collaboration with Stakeholders in the fertilizer industry to boost its production and develop the sector.
He said the effort would ensure its affordability, increased production, self–sufficiency, easy access to products by the farmers, and achieve food and nutrition security. The Minister made this known over the weekend, during a working visit to the facility of Indorama Eleme Fertilizer and Chemicals Limited (IEFCL), located at Eleme in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Alhaji Sabo Nanono acknowledged the company for being a strategic partner in the development of the agricultural sector, especially in the supply of fertilizer products like NPK, UREA, and DAP to farmers across the country. Alhaji Nanono also commended the Organisation for going beyond the sale of Urea fertilizer to farmers to engaging in extensive Agronomy and Agricultural Extension Services and other laudable Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) across the country geared towards improving the quality of lives of the farmers and food production.
