To guarantee food security, the All Farmers Association of Nigeria has urged the Seed Entrepreneurs Association of Nigeria to always ensure the production of quality seeds, and work with farmers across the country.
Kabiru Ibrahim, the President of AFAN, said this at the 2023 annual general meeting and conference of SEEDAN in Abuja.
He noted that seed entrepreneurs, as veritable members of AFAN, are not engaging with Nigerian farmers.
“The industry is supposed to be very prosperous but our farmers do not buy seeds, rather a number of them plant grains.
“Why do you think that happens? It is because you (SEEDAN) are not there, you are not part of us.
“If you don’t produce good seeds, no farmer will buy your seeds. So I advise you to be more proactive, this is for your businesses to grow.
“We have over 40 million farmers all over the country and if every farmer buys seeds of N5,000 from you, you will all be rich people.”
