‘Nigeria loses 60% crops to lack of storage facilities’

The Nation
14 June 2011

Nigeria is losing over 60 per cent of its crops annually to lack of production and storage facilities, it was said yesterday.

The trend may continue, unless the tripartite agreement on agriculture between Nigeria and China aimed at supporting the National Programme for Food Security is fully implemented.

Though the first phase of the 2008 agreement aimed at leap-frogging developments in the country’s agricultural sector has been implemented, the two countries are seeking the implementation of the second phase of the South–South Cooperation Programme, if the desired target must be met.
