FACAN Elects New Executive

Federation of Agricultural Commodity Associations of Nigeria (FACAN) has elected officers to run its affairs for two years. They are Dr Victor Iyama, who was re-elected President; Alhaji Sheriff Balogun is the deputy president; General-Secretary, Bello Dogondaji; Treasurer, Hajia Rukkayat Ismaila; Financial Secretary, Hajia Jumai Abubakar; Public Relations Officer, Mr Henry Olatujoye; Auditor, Mr Musa Labaran and Assistant General Secretary, Bayo Ajibade.
Inyama   called for policies that will support farmers to produce food to meet growing domestic and global demands.
He  sought investment in food surplus storage and promised a market for food surplus produce.
Nigeria, he said, has enjoyed surplus food production but the challenge is to increase storage.
FACAN, he reiterated, would empower small-scale farmers and smallholders to ensure food security and use agriculture to drive economic growth.
