The National Coordinator of Agro-Allied CSP Nigeria limited in the country, Prof. Queen Victoria Abike Adesuyi, has called on the Agro-Allied co-operative farmers across the states to parley with the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to enable them to benefit from agricultural incentives from the government of the day.

She also charged the state Agro-Allied coordinators to deem it necessary to submit the list of their co-operative societies to the federal ministry of Agriculture for the recognition of their co-operatives.

Adesuyi, who made the call in an interview with Peoples Daily over the weekend in Abuja, further pleaded with every state coordinator to forward the names of their Agro-Allied co-operative societies at least in ten groups to be attached with their letter heading to the ministry of Agriculture.

She advised the Agro-Allied coordinators in the states not to hesitate to make their co-operative documents available to the Agriculture ministry, as the government was working towards giving them loan and other agricultural inputs.

She, however, assured the state Agro-Allied coordinators that her leadership would continue to fight for the co-operative farmers in the nation, while thanking the minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbe for the support accorded to the management of Agro-Allied CSP Nigeria limited in all ramifications.
