Nigerian cotton producers condemn govt apathy

The Nigerian Government is facing severe condemnation from cotton producers for the continued downfall in the industry.

According to cotton producers, they have shown all sincerity to boost productivity, but lack of Government incentives is impeding their way.

During a capacity building workshop conducted by the National Cotton Association of Nigeria (NACOTAN) for North-Central region stakeholders, several cotton producers expressed their discontent that the Government was not doing enough to save the country's cotton industry from the crisis that it has been facing over decades.

Governor Umaru Tankoo Al-Makura said the workshop is very important, particularly due to the vital part that agriculture plays in the country's development. He said his government is firm on empowering cotton growers to support growth and development.

State Commissioner for Agriculture, Ahmed Tijjani Usman said the country's economy has largely been affected by large-scale reliance on oil and neglect of agriculture. He, thus, suggested that the country should revisit its roots and prop up agriculture to boost the nation's development.

Hamman Kwajafa, National Chairman of NACOTAN, said revival of the textile sector is a priority for the country and it should be done meticulously as the country's textile industry needs cotton, irrespective of whether it is domestically produced or imported.
