Receiving the document policy from Dominic Graham, Chief Party and Managing Director of Feed the Future, Governor Sani Bello said the policy when implemented will go a long way in attracting and propelling agro-investors into the state.
While appreciating all stakeholders that played a vital role in compiling the policy document, Niger State Commissioner for Investment, Commerce, and Industry, Dr. Mustapha Jibril assures that the state ministry of commerce, investment and industry under his watch will oversee orderly implementation of the policy in vital areas of the economy.
