Written by wave FM on March 16, 2021
Rivers State Governor, NYESOM WIKE, has alleged that politics has been used to deny the state access to agricultural loans offered by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Governor WIKE made the accusation when he hosted the Minister of State for Agriculture, and Rural Development, MUSTAPHA BABA SHEHURI at Government House, Port Harcourt.
The governor decried the situation where every issue in the country including agriculture has been politicized instead of implementing such policy dispassionately to achieve the intended food security and jobs for the youths.
Governor WIKE said even without the loans from the Central Bank of Nigeria, his administration is achieving a revolution in cassava processing that will create jobs for youths and enduring patronage for farmer folks.
Minister of State for Agriculture, and Rural development, MUSTAPHA BABA SHEHURI said he is in the State to inspect ongoing and completed projects that will boost rural agricultural activities under his ministry.
