The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) urged the federal government to add value to Nigeria’s agricultural products in order to achieve zero hunger by 2030.
Mr. Sufyan Koroma, a representative of the FAO country, phoned Abuja on Tuesday for a walk organized to commemorate World Food Day 2018.
Koroma, who stressed that agricultural production would be a waste of time without added value, appealed to the federal government to consider other free services that are necessary for agricultural production.
In addition, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbe, noted that the federal government, through the ministry, is working on how to improve the ease of doing business in the agricultural sector.
The minister, who was introduced to the ministry’s policy planning and coordination director at the ministry, Alhaji Nasir Adamu, said the move should ensure food security and zero hunger by 2030.
