ABUJA—THE Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, yesterday, disclosed that bulldozers will be mobilised in a few days to the site for Agriculture City located at Kerkete Village in Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, to hasten the ongoing clearing and provision of physical infrastructure.
Ogbeh, who disclosed this during an inspection visit to the site of the project, said it would be completed in the next four years at the cost of over N30 billion.
He explained that the money would be sourced from support funds and levies on wheat importation, and not from the budget.
Ogbeh said: “We will conclude our negotiations with Aso Savings and Loans Plc in the next few days after this visit and we will move the bulldozers here”
Earlier, Group Head, Specialised Assets Group, ASO Savings and Loans Plc, Enesi Makoju, described the Agriculture City as an agribusiness hub.
