Agriculture: The key to state-level development in Nigeria
IITA Director General Nteranya Sanginga has highlighted the need for state governments in Nigeria to prioritize investment in agriculture to develop and revitalize state economies. He said this in a presentation at the recent PDP Governors’ Forum, which took place in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Speaking to the 12 Governors in attendance, DG Sanginga highlighted the recent partnership between Oyo State and IITA as an example. He cited two partnership agreements—the STEP-Oyo project and the OYO-IITA Youth Agribusiness Incubation Center at Awe.
