FCTA to harness agric potentials —Minister

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Musa Bello, has said that the administration was working out strategies aimed at harnessing potentials which the territory has in the area of agriculture.

He said with the move by the Federal Government to re-invest in agriculture, every hand should be on deck for the development of the sector.

“We really believe that this is the time to do it right, to go back to the farms, to go back to what we know is the real sector of Nigeria’s economy,” the minister told participants of Course 25 of National Defence College in Abuja at a meeting he had with them.

The minister observed that the territory had huge agricultural potentials and called on members of the organised private sector to take advantage of the prevailing conducive environment to invest in the sector.
