To promote rice production in the state, Kaduna State government
has been provided N2billion loan from Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
At the state secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), State Commissioner, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Dr. Manzo Daniel Maigari, said that though the loan came with 9% interest, it has been provided by the state governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai in order to profit the peasant farmers, who are the prime members in the agricultural value chain, the chance to access the loan at 0% interest rate.
He observed that since the state is non-oil producing one, concerted attempts must be made to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigeria_national_football_team enhance its economy https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigeria even more in comparison to the oil producing states.
He said, We http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/2836.htm have intervention that is available and we have been able to secure a N2billion loan from CBN for rice processing because Kaduna is Nigeria a rice producing state.
He included that the requirement to engage the peasant ranchers became essential as the loan will provide them the chance to http://www.yohaig.ng/category/newspapers/daily-times/ produce more enhanced seedlings and also hybrid livestock for the local and global markets.
