He said a total of 50 billion naira was also approved for agricultural loan under the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development intervention plans.
The minister said the 3.5-kilometer road was one of the 66 rural roads completed so far by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development under the Federal Government’s sustainability plans.
