Speaker Abbas Meets German Delegation, Seeks Support on Security, Agriculture

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Abbas Tajudeen has urged the German government to support Nigeria in advancing its security and agricultural sectors.

This appeal was made during an interactive session in Abuja with members of the German Bundestag, accompanied by the German Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms. Annett Gunther.

Hon. Abbas shared that agriculture is a very important sector within President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration and the 10th House’s legislative agenda. He emphasized that Germany’s expertise and support in agricultural development could significantly enhance Nigeria’s food security and economic stability.

“Security and agriculture are among the focal areas of our administration,” Abbas stated. According to him, insecurity in the country has taken many resources, with its multifaceted implications on infrastructure and food security.

He noted that Nigeria faces numerous agricultural challenges, including inadequate infrastructure, limited access to modern farming technologies, and the effects of climate change. However, collaboration with Germany could provide Nigerian farmers with the necessary tools and knowledge to overcome these challenges.

The speaker called for Germany’s help in making Nigeria’s farming more productive and sustainable. He pointed out that modernizing farming methods and boosting crop yields would be beneficial for the nation.

During the session, the German delegation, led by Mr. Stephen Roundholf acknowledged Nigeria’s potential and the importance of strengthening ties between the two countries.

He stressed the need for both nations to collaborate more closely to facilitate governmental agreements that would boost the economy.
