Nigeria: Tomato growers say policy has enriched more farmers

Mr Adamu Musa, the National Organising Secretary, National Tomato Growers, Processors and Marketers Association of Nigeria said the Federal Government’s agricultural policy had enriched more farmers in the last two years.

Musa said that the acceptance and participation of Nigerians in the Federal Government agricultural policy had made many farmers richer in the last two years than they were.

According to him, farmers are smiling to the banks because the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has given a lot of support and has made farming lucrative through subsidies.

Musa commended the Dangote Tomato Processing Company in Kano for the company’s efforts in creating markets for tomato farmers to take their produce to.

He also appreciated the efforts of Alhaji Aliko Dangote in the area of tomato offtake.

Musa noted that this has helped tomato farmers a lot as they no longer need to worry about their produce.
