Kebbi seeks EU, Oxfam intervention in reducing waste

The Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Abubakar Bagudu, has appealed to European Union (EU) and Oxfam to take action on reducing subsidy in agricultural produce in order to make it possible for crops produced in the country to compete favourable with the outside world. He made this appeal when he received the EU and Oxfam delegates in Government House Birnin Kebbi recently.

He added that the request was to encourage people in Nigeria and African nations to visit Europe out of choice and not out of necessity. He affirmed the commitment of his administration to supporting the programmes and activities of the EU and Oxfam to achieving the desired impact. The governor also expressed satisfaction with the intervention programmes of the EU and Oxfam in three local government areas of Birnin Kebbi, Jega and Danko/Wasagu. He acknowledged that funding by the agencies on poverty eradication and agricultural production had been of immense benefit to the state in the economic empowerment of the people.

Earlier, the leader of the EU delegation, Tomitayo Omole, commended the governor for his leadership style, saying the administration has been doing a great deal to put the state on the path of progress. He explained that intervention programme would assist to address food security and poverty in three local government areas.
