Nanono said that the Federal Government will sustain its collaboration with the state to reposition it as a major industrial state that would employ well over 30,000 youths across the state.

The minister also stressed that the state is key to the agricultural development of the country because of its vast agricultural potentials.

“You can virtually grow anything in Nasarawa State from maize to rice to sugarcane etc,  the state holds the future for a strong agricultural, and industrial sector revolution”, he said.

Nanono assured the governor that the FMARD will support the state in the dualisation of some of its rural roads for ease of movement of agricultural produce, stating that the measure will attract more investors, fast track agricultural development and increase food production in the state.


Earlier in his remarks, Executive Governor of Nasarawa State, Engr. Abdullahi Sule stated that the state is truly an agricultural state and that if given the necessary support from the federal government, the state will add a lot of value to the Agricultural activities and the economic diversification of the present administration,  especially in the area of rice, cassava, yam and other agricultural products.

He solicited the support of the FG to pilot the dualisation and construction of some rural roads across the state and also appealed for the inclusion of the state in the Rural Access and the Agricultural Marketing Project, RAMP because of its proximity to the Federal Capital Territory.

He thanked the Minister and some of his directors, who accompanied him on a working visit to the state recently and assured that the state will engage the youths in the Agricultural sector.
