The Kwara State Government has said that it will seek the partnership of the French Government on its multibillion-naira Special Agriculture Processing Zone (SAPZ) Project.
According to the state government, the governor of the state, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq alongside two of his officials will be attending a three-day summit on agriculture in Paris.
A statement released by the governor’s spokesperson, Rafiu Ajakaye, on Monday disclosed that the partnership drive will be a sideline event during the three-day summit on livestock value chains and agricultural development in Paris/Clermont-Ferrand.
As contained in the statement, “The Kwara team will also seek prospects for the Gidan Magajiya grazing reserve in Baruteen. Such partnership, which will complement Federal Government’s support on the same project, aligns with the state government’s agricultural transformation plan that was recently launched.
“Kwara is attending alongside delegations from at least 15 states from Nigeria, including Ogun and Ondo states led respectively by Governors Rotimi Akeredolu and Dapo Abiodun.
“SOMMET DE L’ÉLEVAGE 2021 (SUMMIT) is the biggest livestock summit in Europe. It is being attended by over 1,700 exhibitors and 95,000 participants from across the world.
“The move comes ahead of the upcoming AfDB board meeting in which the Kwara request on the Lata SAPZ will be discussed,” the statement read in part.
