Also speaking, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu described the idea of the Brass Fertilizer & Petro-Chemical firm as “a game changer that we need to encourage,” adding that such ideas have the potential to change the economic model in the Niger Delta. The Acting President also received a delegation from the Seed Entrepreneurs Association of Nigeria, SEEDAN led by its President Mr. Richard Olafare and the Director-General of the National Agricultural Seed Council, Dr. P.O. Ojo. In his remarks, Prof. Osinbajo assured the delegation that the Federal Government would do much more in the area of agriculture, stressing that fertilizer and seed inputs are vital for the “agricultural revolution” that the Buhari administration is delivering. He told members of the association, “your visit and contributions are very important to us. The President has said we must grow what we eat. We must be able to grow everything we eat. This is very important to us; we are very committed to food security. It is important to hear your views as we shape policy,” he said.
