"We want Farmers Amongst Nigeria's Richest People" - FEPSAN
The Fertiliser Producers and Suppliers Association of Nigeria (FEPSAN) says it is targeting making Nigerian farmers be among the richest people in the country and the world.
FEPSAN President Thomas Etuh said this on Friday in Abuja in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Etuh said modalities were being designed by the present government under the Presidential Fertiliser Initiative (PFI) to take Nigerian farmers out of peasant status.
“At FEPSAN, we want to see farmers all over the world as the richest people but there is need to first of all work on making them have a major stake in the country and not seen as peasants.
“Our target for the next three years regarding input for Nigerian farmers is that we want to see inputs in every nook and cranny of this country, the way we see people selling sachet water.
“And these inputs must be at an affordable rate to the Nigerian farmers,” he said. (NAN)
