60,000 farmers and Disabled persons to benefit from $200m Agricultural Projects in Kaduna

About 60,000 farmers and disable persons, in Kaduna State are set to benefit from the federal government’s agro-processing and support value chain projects.

Dr. Yahaya Aminu, who is the National Coordinator of the agro-processing, Productivity Enhancement and Livelihood Improvement Support , APPEALS,  made this know during a one-day stakeholders’ sensitization workshop in Kaduna.

The project is developed by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, FMARD in collaboration with the World Bank with over $200 million to cover six states.

The project is centered on local production, food security, job creation and economic diversification, with Kaduna, Kano, Lagos, C/River, Kogi, and Enugu with dairy, ginger, tomato, cassava, rice, cocoa, cashew, wheat, poultry, aquaculture, and maize value chains.

According to the coordinator, “the project would target 10,000 direct beneficiaries and 50,000 indirect beneficiaries in Kaduna State.

The project has a structure to mostly benefit women and youth that will allow them to develop agri-businesses that are expected to help create jobs and improve their livelihoods.”

The Deputy Governor of Kaduna State, Arc Barnabas Bala, during his remark, stated that the government is recording landmark achievements in its drive to promote agriculture.

This is one of the reason why Kaduna State has been listed among the six states collaborating with the Federal Government and the World Bank in the implementation of project.

“It is not by accident that our state has been selected Dairy, Ginger and Maize as its PVCs for the APPEALS project.
