The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development has taken steps towards the right direction.

This is aimed at promoting the plan of the government to improve agribusiness as part of the effort of diversifying the economy.

Agriculture remains one of the most viable income generation sector which must be tapped into.

Speaking on the project, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said, “it would bring to an end the roaming of the cattle-rearers and perennial conflicts between the pastoralists and crop farmers in different parts of the nation.”

The ministry has taken a stern measure concerning this.

Ogbeh said, “We are taking a radical step and we are beginning now. We are going to grow grass on a very large scale across the country”.

The realisation of the goals of the project has prompted partnership between a irector in the office of the surveyor-general and the Federal Government.
