More states to benefit from World Bank’s $150m Commercial Agric Project
states are to benefit from World Bank’s $150million Commercial
Agriculture Development Project, CADP, across the six
geo-political zones of the country.
Five states, Kano, Kaduna, Lagos, Cross Rivers and Enugu had earlier benefitted, and the current beneficiaries bring to 10 the number of states benefitting from the scheme.
CADP was earlier implemented in Kano, Kaduna, Lagos, Cross River and Enugu states and will support three value chains per state as follows: Cross River – oil palm, cocoa and rice; Enugu – fruit trees, poultry and maize; Kaduna – fruit trees, dairy and maize; Kano, rice, dairy and maize and Lagos – poultry, aquaculture and rice.
The task team leader of the project, Dr. Lucas Akapa, informed the state governments that CADP would ensure alignment with Federal and state agricultural policies, especially the new Agricultural Transformation Agenda, ATA.
