President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived in Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State, to inaugurate federal government projects, including the Agricultural Machinery, and Equipment Development Institute (AMEDI) Lafia.
AMEDI is one of the current administration’s legacies to make Nigeria a hub and supplier of agro-allied technology, equipment and machinery.
The project is also to make the nation self-sufficient in food production, as well as creating more sustainable jobs for Nigerian youth.
AMEDI, a multi-billion naira product of National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), is equipped with modern laboratories and machines for mechanised farming and agricultural development in the country.
The executive vice chairman/chief executive of NASENI, Muhammed Haruna, who spoke to State House correspondents, expressed optimism that AMEDI would assist the federal government’s plans to promote food security in the country.
The Nigerian leader is also expected to inaugurate the newly constructed Federal Secretariat, Lafia, and visit the emir’s palace in Lafia before attending the campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Lafia Stadium.
The president is expected back in Abuja immediately after the political rally, where the presidential, gubernatorial and other candidates of the APC would be endorsed and presented to the electorate by the president.
