As Nigeria makes move to reposition the agricultural sector towards achieving self-sufficiency in food production and attract investors in the sector, a stakeholder in the agricultural sector, Dr. Abiso Kabir has advocated for favorable policies to drive export. Dr. Kabir who made this known in Abuja while speaking with journalists said the inability to export most product from Nigeria has been attributed to the inability of farmers to meet relevant international requirements on the health of plants that are meant for export, a development that is impeding foreign trade between Nigeria and other countries. The expert who is also the Managing Director of Wal-wanne Group explained that the challenges in the sector are daunting and one of such is the inability of farmers to efficiently export some of their produce. “We are the largest yam growing nation, yet we export none, Ghana is taking the lead now in yam export”, he said. He noted that there was a need to export agricultural products to help improve the standard of living of the people. Nigerian Tribune
