Stakeholders in the fertilizer manufacturing sector have raised serious concerns over plans to hijack the production and distribution of fertilizers to local farmers in Nigeria.

The group had petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari to stop those they described as fertilizer cabal from forcing the price of the product up to N8,000 through sinister manipulations of the MOU between Nigeria and Morocco.

National President, Inorganic Fertilizer Manufacturers and Dealers Association of Nigeria, Felix Okonti, who led seven other companies to the National Assembly on Wednesday, revealed that the cabal which had earlier been subdued by the former Minister of Agriculture, Akinwunmi Adesina, has returned.

The group, however, recommended amongst other things that some Governors, particularly that of Jigawa State, make the MOU public for scrutiny.

It also demanded to know the name of the foreign partners in the process and the price of their contracts to provide certain materials for fertilizer production in Nigeria.
