We are exporting Yam

The Minister of The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Mr. Audu Ogbeh has flagged off the Nigeria Yam Export.
The Honourable minister said Nigeria needs to begin earning more foreign exchange by exporting agricultural products and Yam is a good way to start.

Nigerian as we know, even in the midst of this alarming hunger, is one nation that waste over 20% of the food produced and exportation is one ways we can prevent food wastage, as we are yet to develop adequate capacity to preserve our food.

“There is really no shortage, new yams will be here in two weeks. The old stock is still there everywhere and people in the market are getting worried that new yams will come and nobody will touch the old ones."

“We actually over produce food here (in Nigeria), 30% to 40% of some of the food we produce is wasted because of poor preservation capacity but this will not cause any hardship,” he assured Nigerians.
