Nigeria Set To Export Yams To Europe....

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh, has said that arrangements had been concluded for the first container of yams to leave the shores of Nigeria for the European continent on the 29th of June this year.



He disclosed this in Abuja during a chat with journalists on the achievements of his Ministry since the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government took over power two years ago.


Ogbeh stated that, within the next two years, Nigeria’s agricultural sector will regain its lost glory at the world stage as a major food producer and exporter.

He noted that apart from yam that will soon be added to the list of farm produce Nigeria exports to the rest of the world, the country was doing well in the exportation of vegetables, beans and cowpeas to India, as well as cashew to Vietnam.

The Minister further said that without the support of Nigerians who heeded the call of President Buhari to take agriculture seriously and shift focus away from oil, the giant strides the country was making in the exportation of farm produce would have been impossible.

DIDNT they do their homework well?Not yams please!!!...Other African Countries are already doing that and it is bad business for the resellers because yams are not always in demand and they are stuck with spoilt yams and capital down the drain...Before the yams get here,they are already bad.
Please not yams!

The "lost glory" of Nigerian agriculture lay in

Palm oil from the east
Groundnut and cotton from the North
cocoa from the west

Audu ogbe is from the middle belt which produces the bulk of the yams and he simply want to play the spoiler. Most Nigerian politicians are greedy and selfish; they only empower their cronies and relatives and that is why they kill to get to power. He knows that for instance if he shifts to any of the above listed products, he will be empowering the "other geopolitical zones. Exporting yam will further increase hunger with the skyrocketing of yam prices. It is a shame that we do not export durable products like dry fish with all the coastline of the Niger delta and south west. Shame on you Agric misser!

Why should government do this business. Can they not encourage people in the private sector and help develop the agric sector?

Tiger H said...

Yam is okay, the same way other African countries preserves theirs should be follwed suit. Brown beans would also be really well welcomed

RadioHead Steelheart said...

Stella You can export yams if you use the right cultivars..This is where IATA comes in to help..Has enough research them done on it? do we have good preservative measure for them?...

Remy Davies said...

I wonder...o just imagine

Jamie said...

Lol... This is unbelievable!

Jamie said...

Nigeria, my beloved country!

kudoscake Lagos said...

An average nigerian cannot even afford to buy yam these days

slliky said...

Very correct...this is indeed an insane administration, Nigerians cannot afford to buy yams to eat and u want to export yam...I tire for this 1976 administration

Don L'Perusky said...

It is a good development particularly if they work on its preservation. Nigeria is the largest producer of yam in the world and I see no reason why it should not be exported. Imagine, in Houston one way to know rich Nigerians is if they buy yam at Wazobia market.

If you love me said...

Na real wa...
With the hunger ravaging Nigerians, you want to export yam..
Not your fault at all, you don't know what the average Nigerian is passing through.. Kontinu

LOLLAH said...

Maybe it will help reduce the price of yam when theres competition abi?
I don't know o jare

Bootylycious diva said...

Abenaa we Nigerians arent as bitter hearted as Ghanians ,you married a Nigeria man ,i beat my life you married him for money not for love ,Because ordinary Ghanians hate Nigerians with a passion yet they cant do without us ,we Nigerians love other nationalities ,we have better yam in Nigeria ,just that we fall back more on oil production than agriculture so dont come here and be dancing azonto on my comment.

We don't even have enough yams to go round and they are exporting, the smallest size of yam last I bought was 800 naira... not so tiny though but then 500 couldn't buy any yam amongs the crowd of a aboki I saw.

Lily B said...

Booty baibeee😘😘😘 God bless you for this your reply to Abena, she was prolly feeling like she won a lottoπŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… Ghana my foot, kwasia asem! Their hatred for Nigeria is on another level yet they can do without us Smh. Talking about exportation of yam from naija to Europe, I think it's a very good idea because they don't sell good yams over here.... only God knows where they bring their yams from.

Ribenna baby said...

Is it the yam that we are not seeing to buy that they want to export??? Last time I priced Yam, a tuber was 1k!

Very bluntme said...

U

Justyswt said...

Yams ke, that means we won't be able to eat yam again. Cos it is already expensive!

Anonymous said...

how abt the ladies on this blog going to farm yams instead of every day begging or posing or fighting they should insulin hard work,,,yam they farm will lead to excess and bring the price down in country I'm sure they don't wanna hear this they would rather blame the government etc me I'm going to my farm let me see who will come and beg me to be their angel πŸ˜‡

Rappakatakata said...

Audu Ogbeh always sounds as visionless as the government he works with. Was it not this same Ogbeh man that said plans were being made to convey food stuffs via train wagons to mitigate the cost of motor transportation owing to the price of PMS and AGO?
Now he wants to export yam that is hardly enough to meet local consumption.
