Katsina Govt, NIPC Partner to Boost Investment in Agriculture

The Katsina State Government is set to increase investments in the agricultural sector, expressing its interest in collaborating with the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC).

Governor Dikko Radda disclosed this in a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Ibrahim Kaula-Mohammed.  

He emphasized the importance of value addition, stating that several farmers managed to make a profit. However, lack of processing facilities and limited access to loans made it more difficult for them.

In his words, “Katsina is the investment drive for agriculture and mineral resources because we have a large deposit of various minerals in the state, including lithium, bitumen, and gold.”

He also assured potential investors of his commitment to create a conducive environment for business operations.

“We are always willing to participate in all investment forums that may likely need our presence.

“We have opened our windows. We need to diversify and do many things in order to mitigate the current economic challenges. The only way you can do this is to attract more investments.”
