Tinubu, Shettima woo Niger farmers

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress will Monday meet with agro-commodity farmers in Niger State.

The meeting is in continuation of his ‘strategic engagement’, says a statement issued by his campaign council on Sunday.

His running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, will accompany him to the town hall meeting, with state governor Abubakar Bello playing the host.

“Tinubu is expected to share his agenda on how he plans to build on the salutary  foundation laid by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration in agricultural sector.

“Among what the APC candidate promises, according to his Action Plan, are ramping up the cultivation of the nation’s arable land from 35 percent to 65 percent and the establishment of commodity board for strategic crops, such as cashew, cocoa, cassava, soya, rubber and groundnut.

“Similar town hall meetings are scheduled for Lafia in Nasarawa state and Calabar, Cross River state, in the next few days before the mega rally in Jos on 15 November,” Bayo Onanuga, the

director, media and publicity of the campaign council, said in the statement.
