The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) says it will invest $30 million to boost agriculture in Nigeria within the next four years.
The Country Team Leader, AGRA, Nigeria, Kehinde Makinde, stated this at a workshop on Economic Impact Assessment of the Micro Reforms for African Agribusiness (MIRA) project, in Abuja.
He explained that the money would be used to support small holder farmers across the country.
He said that the project, which would focus on promoting rice, maize and cassava, would last from 2017 to 2021.
Makinde, who noted that Kaduna and Niger would be used as pilot states for the project, added that it would be extended to other states of the country later.
