Did you know tomatoes importation will be banned within the year?

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, has said the Federal Government will provide solar-powered cold rooms in Kano State for the preservation of tomatoes.

The minister disclosed this at the First National Tomato Stakeholders Summit in Kano on Thursday‎. The cold rooms, he added, would be installed in about 15 locations in the state. “In addition to that, the government will also provide cold trucks to transport tomatoes from one location to the other,” Ogbeh said.

‎The minister added that Nigeria and Brazil had signed a $1.2 billion credit scheme for the procurement of 10,000 tractors for farmers; and to boost the agricultural sector. The minster also hinted that the Bank of Agriculture would be re-positioned, adding that 40 per cent of the shares would go to farmers.
