Our Primary Goal & Values
The NFGCS Vision
The vision of NFGCS is to help Nigeria achieve food sufficiency by engaging her citizenry in the now patriotic task of developing her Agricultural Industry.
As an Integrated Agricultural Platform, with partnerships stretching across the country, our Valued Partners must have unflinching trusts in our processes and products.
NFGCS is a working partnership among different working parts. It is a synergic relationship that exists among Host Communities, Management, Investors, staff and the different other parts working towards the shared goal of developing Nigeria through Agriculture.
Integrity is a key value which has served us well in the years since our establishment. As an ideological alternative, it is imperative that a key founding values be Integrity.
Trusted Since 2017
An Idea which started on the back heel of the Occupy NASS movement among comrades who came to the realisation that REAL change will not be feasible without a seismic shift in ideology. NFG-CS understands that for any meaningful development to happen to the Nigerian Economy, Nigerians must develop their Agricultural sector. For the longest time, despite the Billions of Naira which has supposedly been pumped into the Agricultural Sector, Nigeria still spends Billions annually on the importation of food to support the local production of food which isn’t sufficient, while about 50 Million Hectares remain un-farmed.
We have established farm settlement Village in a Nasarawa State, which is located in North Central Region of Nigeria with structures on ground which can support Commercial Agriculture like Irrigation system, employment of Agricultural Extension Officers and purchase of sophisticated Farm Machineries. The Farm Estate is 3,000 hectares large, although a fraction of this number has been cleared for any form of Agricultural activities.
More Than Just a Cooperative
In September, 2018 when it became imperative that there was need to change the structure of the Management of the entity, the Nigeria Farmers’ Group & Cooperative Society (NFGCS) and following the advise of our Financial Partner, KiaKia Bits Limited, a Company was incorporated with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), NFGCS Farms Limited.
Having set up this structure, it was necessary to define the activities of the two complementary yet different business entities. The Nigeria Farmers’ Group & Cooperative Society (The Cooperative) has as its sole responsibility the task of primary production (crop and animal husbandry).
But the opportunities inherent in agriculture are more than just primary productive opportunities. The entire Agricultural value chain is littered with opportunities, opportunities that NFGCS is primarily primed to effectively utilise owing to the track record, experience and good will. These fall under the purview of NFGCS Farms Limited (The Company). Hence, the entity, NFGCS be it the Company or the Cooperative is essential positioned to take advantage of the opportunities in Agriculture using its plug-n-play Integrated Agricultural Platform where partners can plug into a platform for different reasons and needs.
