Our Economy is on track
by: Anonymous

Through the creative management of the economy, Nigeria emerged the fastest growing economy in Africa, with an inflation rate of eight per cent, against 12 per cent when the president came into power, adding that the micro and macro-economic framework introduced by the president and his consistency in policy implementation had boosted investors’ confidence in the economy, attracting over $65 billion in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).
The outcome of the rebased economy is also there as indicators of this and Nigerians are expected to start feeling the impact of the administration’s economic policy soon.

There has been an unprecedented provision of infrastructure including the construction of 62 roads, covering 25,000 kilometres, revival of the railways, introduction of the standard gauge rail-line and the construction of 10 power plants, the establishment of 12 universities and over 125 Almajiri schools.

President Goodluck Jonathan is a forward thinking leader and pacesetter. He knows that any country that neglects agriculture cannot witness any meaningful development. Developed countries and world powers such as United States of America, China, etc use agriculture as the mainstay of their economy hence it contributes greater percetage to the GDP as well as meaningful employment.

Since the coming on board of President Goodluck Jonathan, agricultural sector has witnessed unparalleled revolution. No wonder he is referred to as, " The Farmers President". Today, the success story is dotted around the country and its positive impacts are felt, as imports on food items have reduced drastically, GDP from agriculture has appreciated and unemployment is controlled.

Upon this achievements recorded, President Jonathan is not resting until the task of complete food sufficiency is met, as a nation. This is his target and task that must be accomplished if nigeria is attain the height of a great nation.

In furtherance of this noble assignment, the Federal Government has recently acquired a large hectare of land in Kano, with the state government to allocate additional 250 hectares for the cultivation of Rice, Sorghum and Tomatoes which will make Kano a hub in nigeria to replace the current import of these farm produce from China and Italy.

To practically achieve this Staple Crop Processing zones project, already DANSA Foods investing about $40 million in a 1,200 metric tons facility, the largest processing plant in sub-Saharan Africa, as well as $1 billion secured by the Federal Government from the World Bank, African Development Bank and the private sector for the development of this Staple Crop Processing zones. This fund, released by the Federal Government is for the necessary infrastructure at the project sites.
From the foregoing, it is clearly evident that President Goodluck Jonathan is not playing politics at securing self sufficiency in food production as well as reducing overhead cost in imported goods, especially the ones that can be produced in the country. The roadmap shows brighter and brilliant. Sooner, all importation on these staple food will be a thing of the past.
