NACCIMA ADVISES FG TO COME UP WITH POLICIES THAT FAVOUR FARMERS’ SAFETY

Date:

The Director-General of Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), Mr. Sola Obadimu, advised the Federal Government to make climate change policy and fiscal agenda. In the meeting during the weekend, Mr. Sola highlighted that farmers need guaranteed protection against terror groups and killer herders, that have posed a threat to food security. If the federal government doesn’t provide protection for farmers, there would be continuous threat to food protection, and it will affect the nation generally.
Raising alarms through NiMet and other agencies is not enough; measures have to be put in place to ensure that Nigerians, especially farmers, are preserved from the effects of pestilence, killer herders, flood, and other climate effects. The Director-General also spoke during a press briefing organised by NACCIMA Women Group through his Representative, Mr. Olufemi Alatise, Head, IT & Policy Development for NACCIMA. NACCIMA Women Group is also known as NAWORG, and it is collaborating with the Lagos state government to assist women agropreneurs to network and exhibit their offerings to the world, in the forthcoming international exhibition in Lagos state.
The exhibition is to be held on the 21st to 23rd of October 2022, in Lagos state. It is themed ‘Encouraging Women in Agriculture and Made in Nigeria Products for Economic Growth’. This is an opportunity for women in the agriculture sub-sector especially, to access distribution to the value chain. This exhibition was welcomed by the Director-General of NACCIMA to be timely, and pledged to give full support technically, and in logistics too.
