Nigerian Gov’t to site grain hub in Port Harcourt
The Federal Government of Nigeria has concluded plans to site a grain hub in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mohammed Abubakar, disclosed this at the State House in Abuja.
Abubakar revealed that Port Harcourt had been chosen as the hub for the 25,000 metric tonnes of wheat expected from Ukraine, as Russia also did extend its supply to the country through a United Nations arrangement.
The wheat consignment from Ukraine is still being expected as the hub is hoped to create economic activities in the area.
