Nigeria to revive Bauchi cotton ginnery
Apr '12
The government of Bauchi state in Nigeria is set to revive cotton ginnery in the state to back the Federal Government's efforts to revitalize the troubled textile industries of the country.

During a visit to cotton farmers in Kirfi area, Dr. Dauda Abdullahi, Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of Agriculture said the state government has constituted a cotton revival committee to encourage people to extensively engage in cotton production.

This would raise domestic cotton production and is also expected to solve the raw material scarcity being faced by the state ginneries, he added.

In 1951, the British Cotton Growing Association established a cotton ginnery in Bauchi. But, farmers in the state fell short of producing sufficient cotton to keep it running, Mr. Abdullahi said.

Post-revival, the ginnery would function under the public-private partnership agreement and assistance would also be sought from eminent cotton marketing and processing experts to raise the viability of cotton and to make it of international standard, he added.
