Minister of Water Resources, Suleiman Adamu says there’s no going back on the Ministry’s commitment to supporting the Government’s Agriculture Development Policy.

The Minister said this in a message to the flag-off of the second graduates/youth empowerment scheme in Abeokuta, Ogun State Capital.

Since the federal government signed a public-private partnership agreement with Songhai integrated farms barely 4 months ago, the goal is being pursued vigorously.

The objective is to reposition and strengthen the River Basin Development Authorities, RBDAS to become major economic nerve-centers to support the economic diversification policy of the government.

Part of the agreement is to empower about 1200 graduates across the country through the graduates/youths empowerment scheme.

The ex-president on Monday, September 26, disagreed with President Buhari over claims that he (PMB) inherited “no light, bad roads and no railway”. Buhari, while briefing Nigerians in the United States last week, had said he met nothing on the ground after he took over as the president.

The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Sen. Udoma Udo Udoma has said the federal government will not sell all national assets.He also said the government was exploring several options in the asset sales proposal including repurchase options, which would make provision for buy-back of those assets when the situation improved.
