Nigeria invites Russian farmers to invest

Premium Times | 10 November 2016

“We are inviting Russian farmers to invest in Nigeria, produce and import from here. We are just six hours away from Europe by air. Vegetables, flour can be exported to Europe from here. Even our local market here is a lot,” says Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

Mr. Osinbajo said the availability of arable land in Nigeria made the case for improved local agricultural production in Nigeria an imperative, rather than continued importation with its significant pressure on dwindling foreign earnings of the country. http://www.farmlandgrab.org/post/view/26691-nigeria-invites-russian-farmers-to-invest
