Niger State Governor, Alhaji  Abubakar  Sani Bello has said that agriculture is the  future  of Nigerian economy, insisting that it was time for each of the component unit of the country to look inward for new revenue streams.

While visiting the Nigerian Consul General at the Nigerian House in New York, Governor Bello said that each of the states in Nigeria had what it takes to generate new streams of revenue, adding that he had been working toward repositioning his state into an agro-based economy since May 29, 2015 . 

He stated: “It is very clear from the current reality in Nigeria and the dictate of the global economy that the future of Nigeria's economy does not lie in oil revenue. It lies in agriculture, solid mineral, tourism, sports and other untapped potentials.  It was time we look beyond oil for new revenue stream. Fortunately each state has what it take to  create a new economic  future for Nigeria.

“In Niger State, we are already deploying new strategies and skills in repositioning  it for investment. We will continue to work hard despite challenges.”

“That is why we will continue to reach out to investors across the globe.  We need investors as much as they need us. They will come with financing opportunities, news skills, new technology and new markets.”

Bello said Niger State has huge untapped resource in agriculture, tourism, sports and solid minerals and that he was determined to make the state investment-friendly for local and foreign investors.

Earlier, the Acting Consul General, Consulate-General  of Nigeria, New York, Nicholas Ella commended the Governor for his zeal and determination  in wooing local and foreign investors to the state. He urged Bello not to relent in the effort to reposition Niger State as an invest-friendly environment.

On Bello's delegation  were Member, Niger State House of Assembly,  representing Bida 11 and Chairman House Committee on Works, Hon. Mohammed Alhaji Haruna; Chief of Staff, Hon. Mikhail Al-Amin Bmitosahi; Commissioner for Investment , Hajiya Ramatu Yar’Adua; Commissioner for Finance, Hon. Ibrahim Balarabe; and  Commissioner for Justice, Barrister Nasara Danmallam.
