US to assist Niger boost security, agric, others

The Niger State Government has indicated interest to work with the United States of America on how to efficiently and effec­tively tackle security chal­lenges as well as maximise its potentials in agriculture in the state.
Receiving the US Am­bassador to Nigeria, Mr Stuart Symington, at Gov­ernment House, Minna, Governor Abubakar Sani Bello said the state was also ready to partner with America in the areas of business, commerce and agriculture.
According to him, the area of focus would be on Shea butter which ironi­cally have not been de­veloped over the years because of government inability to invest in the sector.
The governor disclosed that the state government would be sending a del­egation to an agricultural conference in the US to meet and learn from pro­ducers of agric equipment and processing compa­nies.
“A lot can be learnt from the conference, top agri­cultural financiers would be there and we may be fortunate to find compa­nies to partner with”.
