Osinbajo visits farm started by ex-Niger Delta militant

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday visited the Nigerian Farmers Group and Cooperative Society (NFGCS) farm centre located in Gaa’te village, Kokona Local Government Area, Nasarawa State.

He was accompanied by Gov. Abdullahi Sule on the visit.

Osinbajo commended the communities in Hadari Emirate district in Kokona LGA for coming together to form a farm settlement for the production of livestock and crops under the auspices of the NFGCS.

He described the NFGCS farm as a true Nigerian story of honesty, hard work and cooperation regardless of ethnic differences and social background.

The NFGCS farm, coordinated by an ex-Niger Delta agitator, Mr Reston Tedheke, started with three hectares and N1.5 million in 2017.
