Nigeria leads West Africa in organic agriculture promotion – ECOWAS

The Head of Agriculture Division, Commission, Abuja, Mr Ernest Aubee, has said that Nigeria was leading in the promotion of Organic Agriculture in the West Africa region.

Aubee said this in his closing remarks at the cocktail event on `Reporting Back Achievements of Ecological Organic Agriculture (EOA) Initiative’ activities in Nigeria for the years 2014-2020 and Award presentation, in Abuja.

He said Nigeria’s efforts in organic agriculture were commendable and timely, as it was coming at a time when people paid to what they eat.

“What Nigeria is doing will benefit not only Nigeria, as a country, but also the other 14 member states, and we hope member states will take a cue from your strides so far,” he said.
