The President, Chartered Institute of Export and Commodity Brokers of Nigeria, Ayobami Omotoso, says that Nigeria will feed its citizens and other African countries with the Anchor Borrowers’ Programme, ABP of the Federal Government.
Omotoso made the assertion during the 2019 Award Presentation Ceremony held at the Institute’s Secretariat in Lagos.
According to him, the Federal Government is readily available to assist farmers through the Anchor Borrowers’ Programme and other windows, through which money was released by Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk-Sharing System for Agricultural Lending, NIRSAL.
According to him, NIRSAL is an organ of the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN, which renders financial assistance to farmers, small and medium enterprises.
Omotoso urged members to be ready to serve to improve the standard of the institute. He appealed to stakeholders for support to enable the institute pay the two-point-five million naira loan used in renting another befitting secretariat, saying that the Institute also needed one million naira, in order to furnish the secretariat.
