Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, has opined that the Federal Ministry of Agriculture should be scrapped.
In an interview with journalists to commemorate this year’s Democracy Day celebration, the governor while adding his voice to the call for the review of the Nigerian constitution, observed that there is the need to have a constitution that will address the several conflicts facing the country so that the country can make substantial progress.
He also said that the Federal Ministry of Agriculture has outlived its essence and no longer needed. Governor Masari equally faulted the oversight function of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture.
He said the Ministry had outlived its purpose and is no longer needed. He stressed that if the fund given to the Federal Ministry of Agriculture is devolved to states and local governments, Agriculture will be greatly enhanced in the country.
“For example what is the FG doing with agriculture when they have no land? How many parastatals and agencies are there under the Ministry of Agriculture? What are they all doing?
“This Ministry was created for fertilizer. I think we have passed that stage now.
