Receiving the German delegates in Abuja, NIRSAL Managing Director Mr. Aliyu Abdulhameed said: “The partnership with the German Agribusiness Alliance and by extension, German agribusinesses, has been identified as a potential strategic leverage for obtaining invaluable benefits for NIRSAL and Nigeria towards the establishment of agro-industrial projects.”

He noted that the partnership “will have enormous impact in Nigeria’s rural communities, given that upstream segment of Nigeria’s agricultural value chain is dominated by smallholders in rural areas,’’ adding that with the pull and push vibrations in the upstream segment, the midstream and downstream will also be impacted.
